Form Drawing update.jpg

A complete Waldorf form drawing curriculum for grades 1-4

Grades One and Two are open!

Grades 3 & 4 will follow in October-November 2019.


“It is not easy to see the educational value of form drawing by looking at the children’s drawings; for its effectiveness is realized in the process, not the product... form drawing is a present record of a past movement...just as the meander of a dried up water-course records the flow of a river.”

— Rosemary Gebert, Form Drawing

 Details:

  • The content for each grade in this series is delivered once a week over 11 weeks. This content will provide you with the material you need to create a weekly form drawing lesson for your child over the full school year.

  • The first weeks' content will arrive the day you enroll, and once per week thereafter.

  • Our system will automatically email you a reminder each week, whew!

  • As with all of our other courses, once the lessons have posted, they will remain in the classroom forever. They will continue to be accessible no matter if you are able to watch them the week they post, or not.

  • Grades 1 & 2 of this series are not designed for children to watch. They have been created for parents to watch and study/plan with. Grades 3 & 4 are being created to be used either way.


“To develop a feeling for form, the hands must be brought to feel the form; we need to see with our hands. We need to describe the feeling of the movement. We need to work through a form until it is incorporated into us.”
— Embry-Stine and Schuberth, Form Drawing

Do I need a high-speed internet connection to view the course videos?

Yes, all videos are high quality, so you will need a fairly high-speed Internet connection to view them. The videos are a vital part of the content of this course, so please do consider this. We are not able to provide alternative viewing options for people on dial-up or on very slow connections (and we cannot give refunds if you are having issues viewing the videos due to your internet connection). Therefore, please bear this in mind when registering. If you have regular broadband, you should be fine. The videos in this course are *not* downloadable.

  

Is my child the right age to begin this course?

For Grade One:

Is your child wanting to/able to follow simple instructions? A willingness to follow the teacher is a big sign of "readiness" for Grade One.
