FORM DRAWING is the term in use for these dynamic line exercises practiced in Waldorf Schools, which begins to train the dexterity of the children’s hands in writing letters and numbers. This training goes gradually much further than writing: by learning to look at the relationships between all parts of one’s drawing and also at the relation between one’s drawing and the page as a whole, one develops a sense for composition. At the same, quite unconsciously, a sound foundation is laid for what later on will be the study of geometry. By letting the children experience the line as a movement that has come to rest as a gesture capable of describing not only things but moods, their continuous work with dynamic line exercises or those which work on the thinking or willing processes, the teacher helps their children inn the building of their personality. While form drawing enriches most teaching subjects, it is primarily helpful as a pedagogical means, developing imagination and flexible thinking.
