Description

It is widely recognised in Waldorf education that there should be a strong sculptural component in schools to balance with children's lessons in form drawing. The use of hands and sight to create physical forms, and the creativity that flows as a result, is an important experience for growing bodies and minds.

This book, which focuses on non-representational sculpture, presents over 200 exercises for starting to work in clay, free from artistic pressure and full of fun and imagination.

This is a companion volume to Learning about the World through Modeling.
