Creative form drawing is a fascinating and meaningful artistic activity for health and well-being. It is focusing and fun. It engages the right brain, by getting into the flow of colour, form and movement. It offers the space for personal creativity, with stunning colourful forms to stimulate originality. Creative form drawing can be both energising and relaxing, calming and enlivening, a valuable aid to harmonising body and soul.

This first creative form drawing book for adults features fourfold patterns of increasing challenge. It references Celtic, Moorish, Native American and Buddhist patterns, and encourages the development of new forms. The forms have symmetry, a balance between left and right, above and below, connecting the centre with the periphery, providing stability and harmony.

Some forms are rhythmical, having a pattern that moves in flowing rhythms and lines. Other forms are organic, as drawing organically inspired forms such as flowers helps experience nature's colours, and designs. Flowers provide inspiring ideas for colour combinations and for new forms. Drawing with line, form, colour and beauty is a balancing, healing and enlivening process.

Originally developed by the educator Rudolf Steiner, creative form drawing is used widely in Steiner/Waldorf education to support healthy child development and learning.

Review quote

"This is a stimulating book and, partly through the encouragement to use color and partly through the way the forms metamorphose from simplicity to intricacy, it feels more user-friendly to its adult audience than others in this particular realm."

--Trevor Dance, New View
