For Fun, Healing and Wellbeing
Creative form drawing engages the right side of the brain through the flow of color, form and movement. In this book, adults, teachers and therapists will find space for personal creativity, with stunning colorful forms to stimulate originality. Aiming to be both calming and enlivening it is a valuable aid to harmonizing body and soul.
Rather than ‘filling in the lines’ as one would in a mainstream coloring book, the reader is provided with forms in varying states of completion to copy, experiment with and develop. This approach offers more creative freedom, as the reader can choose at what level they wish to engage with the forms, be that relaxing drawing or intensely concentrated creation.
Featuring fourfold patterns of increasing challenge and complexity the designs included represent Celtic, Moorish, Native American and Buddhist patterns with encouragement for the development of new forms. The forms have symmetry; a balance between left and right, above and below, connecting the center to the periphery and providing stability and harmony. There are rhythmical forms having a pattern that moves in flowing shapes and lines. Other forms are organic, as drawing organically inspired forms such as flowers helps one experience nature’s colors and designs. Flowers provide inspiring ideas for color combinations and for new forms.
Originally developed by Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is widely used in Steiner/Waldorf education to support healthy child development and learning.
