Montessori art has a higher purpose to support the child’s creative development.

The activities aim to provide the child experiences in painting, drawing, sculpting, and , craft-making. The child is encouraged to express himself through the different aspects of art education. Montessori art teachers will encourage the child to draw, in the process becoming aware of the shapes and forms present in the environment. Different art mediums are afforded the child so he can create his own masterpiece inside the Montessori environment.

Art, like language or music, is a means of expression. Opportunities for art should always be a part of the classroom environment and not a special event. When children are able to choose art materials freely, they feel respected and satisfied with their abilities.
