Form Drawing for Beginners
Fully-illustrated step-by-step instructions for beginning form drawing.
by Donna Simmons
This is the only step-by-step book on form drawing written specifically for homeschoolers available. A complete sequence of forms for grades 1 - 3 (or older children beginning form drawing), story ideas and instructions on how to actually form drawing make up this user-friendly and practical guide.
Although this book is an integral part of the Christopherus Curriculum for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade, it is really suitable for any beginner, of any age. It is our hope as well that parents will find it a useful aid in their own inner preparation for teaching their children. Form drawing is really not suitable for kindergarten-aged children, but we highly recommend that parents start to work with it themselves.
Note: If you are planning on following our First Grade Curriculum, you will need this book straight away but of course, if you feel confident in this subject, then you might not need this book!
Please note: this volume is a component of the Christopherus 1st Grade Curriculum Package and is used in the first main lesson block, but also stands completely on its own for those not using the full curriculum.
A Virtual 'Buffet' Of Ideas For Us
I’ve really enjoyed working with your form drawing book … it has been a virtual ‘buffet’ of ideas for us to sample and combine to provide a smoother experience. My son’s absolute weakest doorway into life is the kinesthetic; and I do want him to experience it (and also experience some of the struggle that goes with that) … but I don’t want to belabor it. Your book has really helped me to pull together some very practical ideas using a variety of doorways and I have really appreciated it.

EXACTLY What I Need To Get Started
Just wanted to let you know that I received your new Form Drawing book, have already read (or should I say “devoured”?) it and I LOVE IT! It is EXACTLY what I need to get started! As are all of your books, it is so informative, yet presented in a very accessible, user friendly way. Thank you, thank you!
I also am currently enjoying your From Nature Stories To Natural Science book!
Thank you so much for what you do! You have truly inspired me to follow my heart and have given me some form with which to do it!
