'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 SteinerA 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.
