Fine Arts & Enrichment Programs

Pebblecreek Montessori School
  • Fine Arts Program – Enrichment

    Montessori is not a philosophy of teaching, it is a philosophy of life. Attention to detail in the environment fosters beauty creating a peaceful and serene environment throughout the school community. At Pebblecreek Montessori, we put equal emphasis on all areas of the curriculum. Our Fine Arts program is comprised of Music, Art, and Movement. Exposure to the arts fosters critical and creative thinking, grounding, and confidence in the expression of human emotion and freedom to explore and discover the interconnectedness of all things.

    At Pebblecreek Montessori we ensure the best enrichment programs for our students. We focus on developing the complete personality of a child keeping in mind the Montessori principles and guidelines.

  • Music Program in Our School

    Music helps build an appreciation musical skills with a focus on singing and rhythmic movement. Music can be heard throughout the day, as the children sing, work, play and grow in their school environment. Children learn about singing and body rhythms. Our students prepare for and put on two concerts to showcase their musical skills.
  • Creative Movement

    Creative Movement at Pebblecreek has been designed to help the children explore their  imagination, spatial awareness, musicality and rhythm, movement quality, energy, as well as be a great source of physical activity. The class allows students the freedom of moving, expressing, and building confidence in a creative movement based dance class. The class is taught between 3 and 12. It is offered in the spring to help kids prepare for the Spring Concert.

  • Art

    The students of all ages see the creative expressions from around the world which produce art. They also think about what they are seeing by describing and analyzing the elements and
    principles of design that surround them in their daily lives. They share their thoughts about the “hows and whys” of the artistic work. The realization comes that there is no one way to interpret creative expression. Using the skills of problem solving makes art so open-ended. The comprehensive art program provides instruction and skill building in  many mediums, including drawing, painting, building collages and sculptures. Extras involve the printing process, beginning principles of photography and sewing projects. The students love displaying their artwork in many ways. Field trips to local museums and galleries are planned yearly. This type of art education provides the building of intuition, reasoning, imagination and dexterity that help develop a bridge between the verbal and non-verbal including the emotional growth that is needed to create a well educated person ready to succeed in the modern world.

  • The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.
