Mona Brookes developed the Monart Method in 1979 with children in conjunction with phonetic reading programs for K-6th grade. She received a 3-year California Arts Council field study grant, which showed up to a 20% increase in reading scores with her students.

Monart Method

The Monart Method involves training students to perceive an “alphabet” of shape, which trains the eyes to break down an object into smaller parts. By learning to view the world through the five basic elements of shape, the student learns to draw the shape of any object.

Everyone, so-called “drawers” and “non-drawers” can learn to become artists in their own right and develop their own unique style of realistic interpretation.

This widely acclaimed method gives children structured information to improve visual perception and realistic drawing skills. Monart’s comprehensive projects provide the structure and knowledge necessary for learning and help build competence.

Teachers report that students’ focus, concentration, and problem solving abilities increase after the first few lessons. Her books are written for both parents and teachers alike, and her academic-based curriculum stands apart from all other programs.
