Art course for children  is based on Montessori principles of education in combination with classical drawing practices as a tool for hand-eye coordination enhancement which directly leads toward improvement of cognitive skills (perception, attention, memory, visual processing, executive functions).

Benefits for children:
  • Hand – eye coordination improvement
  • Memory stimulation
  • Focus enhancement
  • Self-confidence boost
  • Adoption of classical drawing techniques
  • Creative development

This programme consists of gradual series of special exercises which give effective information and teach about form, proportion and tonal rendering. Every project is built on knowledge acquired in previous lesson.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSICAL  AND MODERN DRAWING

Modern drawing classes neglect the organic structure and unity of the model. Students in drawing classes are allowed to draw approximate sections of bodies and to accept multiple test lines and accidents without correcting or erasing them.A persistent modern view holds that there are no mistakes in a work of art. The only criterion is the artist’s intention.

By contrast, a good academic drawing — today as in the 19 century — should be accurate and finished, concerned with organic unity, and devoid of superfluous details. Careful academic practices not only develop patience but also train the students to see mistakes and correct them.

The course can be attended in a regular setting or an intensive one. We are offering courses during the summer.

4. Meaning of Montessori principles of education we follow

Montessori education assists the child’s natural development into a complete human being comfortable with himself/herself, hers/his society and humanity as a whole.

A prepared environment at MFAS provides a secure and permanent foundation on which artistic education should be based. It is specific to each developmental plane but guided by the same principles. 

Within our society we are in constant interaction with people who are older or younger. Since  children need different environments at different stages in their development, art classes at MFAS are age mixed. That way the young child is surrounded by role models. Similarly, the older child finds himself/herself in a position of responsibility which leads toward cooperation within group.

Each child is given freedom of choice and freedom of time which allow the child the freedom to respond to the teacher within her/him. 

When children are allowed freedom in an environment suited to their needs, engaged into activities of their own choice they grow inner discipline and develop their own will.

5. Use of classical drawing practices

At MFAS we use classical drawing practices as a tool for hand-eye coordination enhancement which directly leads toward improvement of cognitive skills (perception, attention, focus enhancement, memory stimulation, visual processing, executive functions), self-confidence boost and creative development.
