Painting with Children: Colour and Child Development

Written by Brunhild Müller and translated by Donald MacLean

When we paint with colors 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 watercolor painting.

Essentially practical, this book is based on Goethe's color theory and shows that painting with children is more than just a form of self-expression. Müller encourages and attempts to understand children's fantasies through their artwork.

This guide for parents and teachers to painting with watercolors covers preparation, color-stories and poems, painting moods of nature and the seasons of the year.
