Do you have any tips for using form drawing with an older child who has never done it? In terms of... Start right from the first grade forms? How quickly to move through the forms?

We are neither Waldorf homeschoolers nor anthroposophists, but I do admire many aspects of the approach. My son is 11, has ADHD/sensory issues and terrible handwriting, but he does love to draw. I'm hopeful that form drawing will be enjoyable, as well as calming and beneficial to his handwriting.

We're trying to decide which books might be best for us. I have no experience with form drawing and only the barest glimpse of what it is via the internet... I understand what it is and how it works, but next to nothing about how to implement it, or what exactly the forms are and how to progress through them (I've seen only a dozen or so samples online).

I'm also thinking it would be a great thing to do with my daughter when she's older (she's only 3 now).

Thanks for any comments. :)


Yes - start with the first forms but move along much more quickly than with a little one.

I strongly suggest that you consider purchasing our form drawing as it is written specifically for homeschoolers and provides both step-by-step instructions as well as an easy to follow sequence of forms.
