Summary

Designed for Montessori teachers with little background in the plastic arts, this discussion points out that, while the Montessori program has many features that support creative development, presently, no art curriculum exists. The article indicates the limitations of Maria Montessori's ideas and attitudes about the role of art in the education of young children and offers very brief summaries of other theories of children's art (specifically, developmental, cognitive, psychoanalytical, perception-delineation, perceptual, and cognitive-developmental theories). Also provided are general guidelines for developing an art curriculum, summaries of developmental stages in children's artistic expression, advice about planning and preparing art activities, and suggestions concerning interaction with children in the course of art activities. A substantial portion of the article discusses basic concepts of graphic art (including line and form, color, composition, and texture and dimensionality); describes resources for art activities; discusses media characteristics and art techniques; and provides numerous lesson plans for drawing, painting, collage, printing, and modeling activities of graded difficulty.
