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.
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.
