American Montessori Art

About Montessori Art

The appreciation of color, shapes, lines, and creativity is as human as nature, and the Montessori Art curriculum gently places the child right in the middle of it. A fascinating aspect of this is the actual appreciation of age-old classics like Van Gough, Monet, and Da Vinci. A child must love art, so we keep it simple; making it also a way for creative outlet. Another aspect of Montessori Art is the creation of other forms of art, and learning basic skills, such as using scissors, glue stick, paintbrush, and the study of certain geometric shapes.
