Artist of the Month!

My Students

I serve in a public Montessori school. My students range in ages from 3-6 years old. Montessori schools are typically private in nature, but what is so exciting about our school is that we are a public Montessori, providing Montessori education for students who might not otherwise be exposed to this style of education. My students come from a wide range of socioeconomic status' and cultural backgrounds, and they absolutely LOVE art, music, and Montessori! Last year we really got into gardening and nature, and now I want to dive into the world of art, beyond finger paint and glitter!

My Project

I want to expose my young learners to famous artists! This year I want to highlight an artist of the month and allow my children to learn about the life of the artist, the country where the artist was from, the style of art the artist used, and some of the artists most famous pieces of art. I have chosen some children's books for each of the artists we will be studying in order to introduce the artist in a child-friendly way. We will be recreating some of the famous art pieces with our own creativity and will use the books as a jumping off point to connect art and literacy together. Children will have the opportunity to do research on the artist of the month using the books from this project as another way to bring literacy and art together!
