The Litchfield Montessori school will have their artwork on display in the Jamie Gagarin Community Room and Gallery at the Oliver Wolcott Library located on 160 South Street in Litchfield from January 5- January 27. The exhibit has been curated by LMS Art Specialist Liliana Kleid. This year’s theme is “Masterpieces From Trash.”
The exhibition’s goal is to raise awareness of the environmental issues facing society. Society’s reliance on paper and especially plastic has created environmental problems including groundwater contamination, crowded landfills, and ocean debris. These environmental issues are a legacy that future generations will have to contend with. Techniques used include drawing, painting, collage, sculpture.
About the Montessori School
Established in 1972, Litchfield Montessori School’s curriculum and approach to learning reflects the commitment and vision of Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori believed that the goals of the educational process should be to cultivate self-motivation, to encourage the child’s natural desire to learn, and to promote critical and creative thinking. LMS is committed to serving the whole child by nurturing their love of learning, preserving their sense of wonder, encouraging independence and fostering respect for our world’s social and cultural diversity. Located on a four-acre campus in the Northfield, the Litchfield Montessori School serves children 15 months through 12 years of age.
