“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.” ― Maria Montessori
The child’s imagination and creativity is built through interactions with the environment. Maria Montessori saw the environment—beauty, order, and reality—as essential, but also that the child needs freedom to develop creativity. The child needs, “freedom to select what attracts him in his environment, to relate to it without interruption and for as long as he likes, to discover solutions and ideas and select his answer on his own, and to communicate and share his discoveries at will” (Paula Polk Lillard, Montessori: A Modern Approach).
Join ACT for this in-person collaborative in depth session to explore children’s artistic expression through a Montessori lens and examine how we can facilitate these experiences in our classrooms today.
