Creative Form Drawing with Children: Workbook 2 is a form-drawing resource for teachers working with ages 10 to 12. It is designed to be used with the Waldorf curriculum of classes four and six. It will be valuable, as well, for homeschooling parents using the Steiner/Waldorf approach as their core basis.

Creative form drawing helps children develop eye–hand coordination, spatial orientation, observations skills, confident movement, drawing skills, as well as the foundations of handwriting.

Originally developed by Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is widely used in Steiner/Waldorf schools to enable healthy child development and learning.

“As a teacher new to Waldorf education, this book has been an invaluable guide to developing form drawings. I have found that the children's work became more balanced, coordinated, and harmonious. The children had a greater attention to detail with special awareness after doing these exercises.” —Victor Ray, class teacher at Michael Hall Steiner Waldorf School, Kidbrooke Park, England
