'When we paint with colours we should paint in such a way that we are conscious that we are calling forth life from what is dead.' -- Rudolf Steiner
A vital factor in a child's development is the stimulation of active imagination and creativity. Here are ideas for encouraging self-expression through watercolour painting.
Essentially practical, this book is based on Goethe's colour theory and shows that painting with children is more than just a form of self-expression. Muller encourages and attempts to understand children's fantasies through their artwork.
This guide for parents and teachers to painting with watercolours covers preparation, colour-stories and poems, painting moods of nature and the seasons of the year.
