Hi, 

I´d like to learn how to draw the "waldorf" way, I do have a couple of books about waldorf drawing, but aimed on kids and I like to do some drawing with actual characters and stuff, the "waldorf way" 

 

Does anybody know abut online resources? Aimed at adults or older kids? 

 

Thanks so much!

Here are some links:

That's a little help.  I don't know about it beyond children.  I really like the More Magic Wool book in terms of seeing characters and stories embodied in art.  Those are done in wool roving, but could easily be recreated in crayon or watercolor.

Hi 

I'm not sure this really is what you're after, but as someone who went through a Steiner high school I can say there was no "Waldorf" or "Steiner" way of drawing, we were encouraged in art classes to explore different styles, though I do remember doing some techniques using those covered in Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: http://www.amazon.com/Drawing-Right-Brain-Betty-Edwards/dp/0874775132/ref=pd_sim_b_8

 

Enjoy your experimentation!
