Arts and Craft
The Montessori method of teaching arts and crafts is different compared to other educational methods.
It is not well known for encouraging creativity. This may seem a little unusual because art craft is a big part of children’s education. Partially, this is a misconception.
Creativity does exist in a Montessori classroom, but the approach to it is different and unique.
Montessori identified art as a way of communication and self-expression for the child.
The first step to art is to prepare the hand and the mind for creative expression. The child’s creativity becomes spontaneous as he develops the necessary skills.
So not only does creativity exists in the Montessori classroom, but it can also be found in all the areas of learning as well.
