Knowledge = Exploration x Experience

Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment. Maria Montessori

In the photo above, a 4 year-old child explores geometric forms after discussing the art of Wassily Kandinsky. During Art, children learned about his passion for music, his love of the arts and his desire to unite the two in harmony through color and form. Students continued to work over their collage the following class with watercolor while listening to music composed of a gentle and calm melody.

Maybe my mathematical formula will be fancied by the DOE. Let’s keep the Arts alive.

After all, the earth without “art” is just “eh”.

I enjoy what I do. -MJ
