Montessori Art

Maxine Stadnik has been working with the Renaissance Village community for over 10 years. She holds a degree in Art Education and is the creator of Max’s Art Adventures, the early childhood art curriculum implemented in Montessori Art classes at Renaissance.

The primary objectives are that students love doing art and have fun experimenting with various art forms and materials. The program is process, rather than product oriented and the lessons are created for open-ended exploration. Motivation for art activities comes through picture books, projected images of works by notable artists and discussion. Students express their ideas through drawing, painting, printing, gluing and sculpting. There is a multi-sensory approach to becoming aware of the world around us. Each lesson includes one or more of the Elements of Art: line, shape, color, form and texture. These are part of the language we use to discuss art. With small class sizes, we can address each student and comment on his/her work.

Participants: toddlers age 15-24 months and their caregivers.
