"Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core."

Maria Montessori

Visual Arts

The Visual Arts program at IMS is designed to take each student on a journey of exploration. Exploring materials, techniques and the inspiration behind the work of great artists from around the globe. When students learn about art-making practices, using both traditional and contemporary tools, they develop the abilities necessary for self-expression and critical thought. Students not only create images and objects, but also appreciate, enjoy, respect and respond to the practices of art made by others.

Through participation in different units, students will gain knowledge and understanding of art, materials and techniques. This will help to develop their reflection and appreciation skills, plus their creativity and problem-solving skills.

These units include:


Paper Construction




Recycled Art
