Art and art activities.
It is wonderful that children are encouraged to participate in art activities such as drawing, painting, cutting and pasting. In Montessori education, art is seen as an important form of expression and creativity for children, and access to art materials and the freedom to experiment with them is essential to their development.
By offering a variety of artwork materials, such as different types of paper, crayons, colored pencils, markers, crayons, watercolors, etc., children have the opportunity to experiment and create freely. It is also important to rotate the artwork materials to keep the children interested.
In addition to traditional art materials, play dough, modeling clay and kinetic sand are excellent materials that stimulate the senses and offer many creative possibilities. You can also combine art activities with academic lessons, such as making play dough letters to learn letter sounds or drawing flowers with a certain number of petals to reinforce counting.
In short, providing art activities in the Montessori prepared environment is essential to foster children’s creative expression and to complement academic activities. By encouraging children to experiment with a variety of art materials, we help them develop their creativity, manual dexterity and ability to express themselves.
