“The human hand, so delicate and so complicated, not only allows the mind to reveal itself but it enables the whole being to enter into special relationships with its environment… man ‘takes possession of his environment with his hands.’ His hands, under the guidance of his intellect transform this environment and thus enable him to fulfill his mission in the world.”
– Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child
Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield presented An Evening with the Arts. Beautiful art work done by the school children – under the guidance of Art Director Linda Bagley – was presented to parents and friends. Garden art was also part of the event and the Kindergarten class showed off their skills in contributing to the garden art exhibit.
Visual art in our Montessori classroom addresses both the emotional and physical development of the child. We use art to help our students learn how to communicate their feelings and ideas and explore their creativity. Art also helps children develop their fine motor skills needed for many walks of life.
