EXPOSURE TO ART/MUSIC

Montessori emphasis on art comes from the development of the hand, the prehensive organ of the mind

In art, the child learns to express himself using different media.  He learns the basic elements of art and art concepts.  He is also shown and learns to recognize great works of art and great artists.  We encourage the child to explore his/her own artistic style of expression and support the results by pointing out their choices in coloration, design, stroke, use of space, details, and message being communicated.

At the Primary level, the child discovers the joy of music.  The child is introduced to various types of music.  Musical games are played and the child learns to move to music.  Rhythm and beat are taught by using instruments.  Musical terms, great pieces of music and great composers are also included.
