Music and Art
Artistic expression is weaved throughout the entire Montessori curriculum. Self-expression through problem solving and experimentation with the elements of art and music are ever present at Cornerstone. Students receive direct instruction in art concepts, art appreciation, and art media. The production of art is viewed as a process-based experience and is inspired by the work in all areas of the curriculum as well as through sharing a love of art for art’s sake.
Music is part of the curriculum at Cornerstone at every developmental level. All students are provided a baseline of music literacy through listening and participation. Students have opportunities for practice and performance throughout their Cornerstone years. A full complement of Orff instruments, theatrical equipment, private instruction, and venues and opportunities that allow for musical expression at school are all part of an education at Cornerstone.
