Montessori saw the ability of the child to express himself as an individual as something of paramount importance.
She saw free drawing as one way in which he could do so and she set about analysing what she could do to assist the child in this endeavour.
What she realised was that children used their movements and, in particular, their hands to help them express their thoughts. She, therefore, provided environments where they could work in an indirect way, mastering those skills which would facilitate later drawing.
