Kytka Recommends: Drawing and Painting in Rudolf Steiner Schools
July 1, 2002

For advanced users and people interested in curriculum for older children, and people who are looking for information on the Waldorf method of painting, we HIGHLY recommend Drawing & Painting in Rudolf Steiner Schools

This is an available book, however I believe it is about $35.00. Let me tell you – this will be the BEST $35.00 YOU WILL EVER SPEND on homeschooling books!

This comprehensive account of painting and drawing in the Steiner curriculum combines detailed practical advice with clearly defined philosophy on aesthetic education. It takes readers carefully through each stage of Steiner art teaching, suggesting appropriate exercises, and explains the reasons for the different developments in the curriculum at appropriate stages of pupils’ development. This book is not only a reference source for all who are involved in teaching in Steiner schools, but should inspire all who are concerned with children’s creative development and fulfilment.

I highly recommend this book.
