Montessori method

The Montessori method is an approach to educating children based on the research and experiences of Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori (1870–1952). It arose essentially from Dr. Montessori's discovery of what she referred to as "the child's true normal nature" in 1907,[1] which happened in the process of her experimental observation of young children given freedom in an environment prepared with materials designed for their self-directed learning activity.

Thank you for all the help - Thanksgiving greetings from Pete Ippel

[1]Pete Ippel Signature Logo Links: 1. Thank you. Greetings , One year ago today, after an emergency brain surgery, I was put in a section of the hospital that provided extra care for its patients. There was FALL PRECAUTION and FALL RISK...the problem was that my wrists were so skinny that it was impossible to see the text on my plastic bracelet... So in order to make the bracelet function, rather than just being a yellow band, I really wanted to cut the extra flap off... My dad spent the day looking for something to cut it off with, and we ran out of options, and I was a bit low on I helped him hold the other side of the flap, and he went at it with a nail file. We sawed and hacked through that vinyl cuff, and out came a message of inspiration... From FALL RISK to ALL RISK. I've kept that yellow and black bracelet on my arm to remind myself to tell people I love them, to keep in mind it's ok to dream about riding that bike ride in a year... To go out of my way to say thank [2]share. Links: 2. Once you learn to make choices, you're an artist. Figuring out priorities becomes clearer, and it's pretty easy to decide anything. Just look at the possibilities, and no matter who you are, or how much you plan (which helps a lot!) the unexpected happens...embrace's ALL RISK. ‽ I take the question marks in my life and bend them into exclamation points. I am the human [3]interrobang. Links: 3. DOWNLOAD [4]ALLRISK LOGO and share [5]the story with friends and loved ones. Links: 4. 5. In closing, I really must reiterate how incredible it feels to be actively making my dreams a reality. This is in part your story. Thank you for your interest in my work, and your continued support. I made this video for you. Pete Ippel Studio Thank You1 likes516 views I am dedicated to learning every day and I am committed to making the best art at every possible moment.

The purpose of is to showcase expression and research influenced by technology, specifically contemporary artist video, photography, drawing, writing, and installation. succeeds in its bredth, depth, and complexity, while succeeds in it's simplicity. has the sole purpose to display selected artwork and art related events. Artist Statement: For more than a decade I have explored and combined traditional art materials with digital techniques demonstrating creative fluency. By moving with ease and grace through a variety of media, I focus on communicating ideas and I gain knowledge in the process. I work intuitively and iteratively when creating art and often apply scientific methodology to my art practice with the rigor of a seasoned athlete. By observing human behavior, asking generative questions, and analyzing information, I experience daily how a disciplined process leads to comprehension of complex data and ideas. I use my artistic sensibility to present my findings in unique and compelling ways. I appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of the artist's life. I aspire to travel, to teach, and to create while extending my exhibition record. Being nourished creatively while partaking in a challenging path is a delight, and I particularly relish learning along the way. Art is the most practical, essential, and exciting field of work in the world today, and I look forward to sharing it with you. Check out my website, come by the studio, buy your own piece. I guarantee that you will have never seen anything like my art before. [10]view email in browser | [11]unsubscribe | [12]update your profile | [13]forward to a friend Links: 10. 11. 12. 13.
