Welcome to Matisse, Monet and Me™
Matisse, Monet and Me™ introduces art history to children and encourages creative expression through the inspiration of an artist or culture.
Our curriculum follows the Montessori art philosophy of “process vs. product". A new artist or culture is studied once a week until completion of our 3-year curriculum cycle. Primary students (3-6 year olds) are introduced to historical art ideas and learn how to manipulate various art media while developing their “pincher grip” needed for writing. Elementary and Jr. High students review artists in greater detail, experiment with various art media, fine-tune their motor skills and build on their eye/hand coordination.
Matisse, Monet & Me™ 2016-17 curriculum
This school year is an exciting time for Matisse, Monet & Me™ as we travel back in time to begin our 3 year curriculum cycle with the Prehistoric Period and Cave Art again! We will then continue to create art inspired by a new time period and artist each week,explore the art techniques, ideas of the old masters and create our own art inspired by them!
