Maria Montessori School art projects are designed to tap into the creativity within each child.

Emphasis is placed on art processes rather than end results.

Students are encouraged to explore and become comfortable with a variety of media including painting, drawing, collage, pottery, sculpture and photography. Once they are confident with the materials, they are better able to draw on their personal observations, adventures and dreams in their creative works so they can be realized in a concrete way.

In addition to individual art projects, students are given several opportunities throughout the year to collaborate on community art projects, often working in groups and pairs. These projects are fun and rewarding for children and encourage respect for their own work and others.

We strive to present students with a wide selection of real art materials that are beautiful to the eye and satisfying to the touch. Besides the wide array of paints, collage paper and drawing materials available to the students, MMS also has a pottery studio with pottery wheels and a kiln plus a black and white darkroom for photography projects.
