Dörte Finke – Art Director
Hailing from Germany and a long-time resident of Central Austin, Dörte has been in the Montessori classroom for over a decade. After the first of her three daughters enrolled in a Montessori school, Dörte knew that her passions for art, crafts, tinkering and love of life had a home in the Montessori classroom. Her projects with the children include paper-making, simple woodchopping, printing, paper mache, and even a bit of concrete pouring. True to Maria Montessori’s ideas, she sees art as an opportunity for children to learn precision and problem solving, simultaneously fostering independence and autonomy in the physical and emotional realms.
