A 2010 newsletter from Michael Olaf which provides a nice overview of art activities in a Montessori environment by the planes of development.

Here is a blog about possible Montessori art activities in Level 2 atrium (elementary room).

Idea for a writing center that might free up atrium space in a small atrium.

Paint pages, make it easy to say “yes” to painting, take them when you travel, hikes or picnics!  All you need is some  watercolor paper and small squirt of watercolor paint (don't need much water color paint goes a long way plus it won't stain clothes, pretty much washes out of most everything). allow a few days to dry. Then when you are ready to paint just add water.

organize student supplies for art in clear cups with magnets "buttons" attached to the bottom and set into muffin tin. This would be awesome using an old muffin tin that you spray paint a FUN color!!!
