As a core part of Montalvo's mission, we strive to provide quality learning experiences for all ages, both at Montalvo and at home. To help supplement arts integrated learning, we are excited to share this toolkit with our community. The toolkit is an assortment of supplemental activities created for you and your family to do at home, illustrating artistic and scientific concepts through simple and inventive projects. 

At Home With Montalvo

These step-by-step lesson plans for at-home learning can be followed to create simple art projects at home. Just choose your project, gather the materials, and follow the directions to bring some creativity to your child's day!
