"When I entered teacher training, I couldn't 'draw'. Everyone else could draw better than I could and worse -- it was so easy for them! Now here I am three years later and I feel confident guiding my students with their beautiful drawings."

Many people learning to be Steiner-Waldorf teachers struggle with the artistic elements of the curriculum. This unique book book is written and formulated to prepare, support and guide teachers on their journey of learning to draw with the children in their class.

Written from years of experience in a Steiner-Waldorf classroom, this is an essential guide to unlocking the 'drawer' within all of us.

Winner of gold medal in the Moms' Choice Awards, adult self-development category.


'Being able to see that I am capable of producing beautiful work has been extremely rewarding. I've become more confident in my abilities.'
