Art is a very naturalized expressive language in school, which is often limited to isolated, unsystematic or technical experiences and says little about the expressive flow of the child from 0 to 3 years old.

In the Montessori approach the artistic experience focuses on the child’s ability to absorb any stimulus that he perceives in the prepared environment that is offered to him, addressing artistic expression from different aspects in each of the artistic languages.

Dr. Montessori is based on the American philosopher John Dewey and his publication Art as Experience (1934) in which he expresses the foundations of art as an everyday experience.

For Dewey, art is not an experience removed from day to day, alien to everyday life. He stated that art as “a quality of doing”, a concept that Dr. Montessori shared the concept of activity: we offer the child “motives for activity”, occasions for expression, situations or experiences through artistic parameters.

“For the young child, life is Art and Art is life,”says Murray Shafer, a Canadian music educator. It is that the child from 0 to 3 years old does not separate between the aesthetic experience and their eating, hygiene and sleep habits.

The Role of the Adult in this process is of fundamental importance, and just as we take care of the level of intervention of the adult in other areas of education, we do not teach art, but we design motifs of artistic expression and express ourselves together with the child.

The interests, needs, learning and sensitive periods of the child from 0 to 3 years are many and they occur in a very short time: movement, language development and the apprehension of objects through their senses. The expression proposals that we offer to him must respond to all these needs.
