We welcome you to the Sonia Caballero Montessori Art School

The first online Montessori Art School founded by Sonia Caballero.

Cognitive development through Montessori art courses.

Montessori art courses are an ideal way for children to learn and experiment with different materials and techniques.

In Montessori education, art is considered a vital tool for children’s cognitive and creative development.

Through painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, origami, kumihimo braiding, among others, children can learn and develop mathematical and geometric skills, manual dexterity and brain connections…

 

«As an educator, mother of three children and Art teacher for children ages 3-12 at Japan’s Montessori College, I became aware of where the authentic artist can be found and discovered that art is loved by all children. However, this interest begins to fade as the child matures. They just need to have the materials and tools. This ‘great-little artist’ emerges from carrying out a project with enthusiasm and freedom. As adults we strive, unnecessarily on many occasions, to try to mold the child by encouraging him/her to do things that we consider to be correct. However, by trusting their autonomy and letting them investigate and perform a task on their own, they can surprise us with fabulous results. On the other hand, it reinforces their self-worth and acceptance when feeling loved and useful.».

«Joy, feeling your own worth, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and able to produce, are factors of great value to the human soul.»

Why choose Montessori art courses?

Montessori methodology is based on learning through experience and experimentation. Our art courses are perfectly suited to this philosophy, as children have the freedom to explore and experiment with different techniques and materials in a safe and fun environment.

Children also learn at their own pace and according to their own needs and interests, which means that each child can develop their artistic potential to the fullest.

Our Sonia Caballero Montessori Art School

At our Sonia Caballero Montessori Art School, we offer a wide variety of art courses for children of all ages. From painting and drawing to origami and clay modeling, our courses are designed so that children can experiment with different techniques and materials while developing their creativity and artistic skills.

Our school is staffed by teachers who are highly trained in Montessori methodology and different artistic techniques. In addition, our courses are adapted to the needs and interests of each child, ensuring that each child has a unique and enriching experience.

Benefits of our Montessori art courses

In addition to developing artistic and cognitive skills, our Montessori art courses have other benefits for children. For example, our painting courses help children develop their coordination and visual perception, while our origami and kumihimo braiding courses teach them manual skills and help them follow detailed instructions.

Why choose Arte Montessori Sonia Caballero?

At our Sonia Caballero Montessori Art School, we strive to offer children a unique and enriching educational experience. Our art courses are designed to encourage creativity, exploration and learning through experience and experimentation. In addition, we update and upload new courses to which you can have unlimited access with a monthly subscription.

        "Your book 101 Creative Projects was a great inspiration for me to write my dissertation. In addition, reading it has led me to continue researching, awakening a lot of curiosity and appreciation for Japan and its beautiful culture. I am enclosing my TFG in case you would like to take a look at it since I mention your book as an inspiration".

          "It is a really special book that brings ideas and concepts to both children and adults. I was especially struck by the concept of IKIGAI and the different techniques of Japanese art. The most practical part of the book is developed as a project, with very illustrative images of all the techniques used. The projects that serve as a source of inspiration for the children are very original and based on sustainability and responsible consumption. Having a space in the book to put the photo of "MY PROJECT" gives a touch of interaction that the little ones love. In conclusion, I loved the subtlety with which she transmits her love and respect for Japanese art and customs".

              "I have heard from several people about this book through montessori networking groups ... . They sent me an interview of the book's presentation on Onda Cero Cataluña, from Ramon Soler's program Made in Japan on Sonia G Caballero's youtube channel and I couldn't resist buying it. I finally got it on the website of Sonia G Caballero. It teaches much needed terms that complement our western culture. An essential book if you are looking for alternative education, homeschooling, montessori, waldorf ...it is the ideal book. I bought it in the afternoon and it arrived the next day in the morning. Super happy. I recommend it 100%. Wait for all ages. The projects can be adapted according to the child. My daughter is 10 years old but the projects can be done from 4 to older if you like art. It teaches exclusive techniques of Japanese art, something unique and collected in one volume “.

He did not like drawing at all, the teachers told me that he started to participate with great enthusiasm in Sonia's art classes. I am very grateful, now even at home she draws and makes very creative designs. Some projects are unique and registered which makes it a very special book within the Montesori philosophy".

                        “My daughter has trouble concentrating and has a hard time finishing a task or staying on task for any length of time. The projects proposed by Sonia Caballero have managed to capture my daughter's attention and she has managed to finish more than half of the projects in the book. She loves to put the picture of her finished project in the space that Sonia has left for each child to feel a part of this book. My daughter's concentration has improved and she is finding it easier and easier to complete tasks on her own. Thank you Sonia Caballero”.

She has great artistic skills, so I decided to give her this course as a gift. My daughter has told me that she is very happy, the projects are very varied and of a high artistic level in addition to working on values, environmental education etc. My granddaughter has replaced her art classes with this course because she can do it from home. I am very pleased”.

It is an inspirational tool not only for the little ones but for the whole family. What better way to enjoy time with the little ones.

This Course is a gift that contains her art and her knowledge: the quality of the paper, the images, the layout. You can see that, in every detail, the artist has put her heart, her time, her knowledge. It has 19 practical exercises (there is a section reserved for "my project") very well explained and illustrated. One of the things I liked the most is to know concepts of Japanese wisdom and culture associated with artistic projects: IKIGAI, KOKORO WO KOMETE, MINIMALISM, WABI SABI, etc. As the author says it is a book to do together: at home, in any Montessori school, in any class that works by projects, in any art class. I loved it. I can only recommend it”.

She finds it very fun to do the projects and read the techniques and curiosities that the author writes with great affection and interest for children. I love to receive as a gift the work that my granddaughter does with this book. I have given it as a gift to two other people and they are very satisfied with the variety of projects that touch on various topics”.
