Montessori children learn to classify all sorts of things. Currently, the children are learning about artists and their paintings. They are learning to classify paintings as portraits, still life, genre or landscape paintings. Some are also learning about specific artists. They have all painted their own portrait or a still life. We are looking forward to a trip to the Wadsworth Atheneum on February 11. It will be an opportunity for the children to apply their new knowledge and to see some of the original paintings that we have been studying. I hope to see you there.
