Montessori - Art and Craft

Art is one of the many ways children express themselves. Art is a way for children to communicate their feelings. It is through art that children develop their fine motor skills. In the Montessori environment, we provide open-ended art activities that help children explore and use their creativity.

When it comes to art, it is the process not the product that is important to the child. As adults, our goal is to produce a product. The child interacts with the world differently. The child works to develop self. The focus is on the process not the product. Once a child creates something, he does not feel the need to keep the product. It is the process that gives him satisfaction and inner joy.

 

Creatively speaking, there is no set curriculum for art in the Montessori method. Most of the artistic activities are done through arts integration; combining art with subjects of study in order to learn the material. The only materials provided for artistic use are geometric insets, which children are allowed to trace and color in.
