DuPage Montessori School

Every month the children at DuPage Montessori learn about a famous artist. They read books about each artist, learn the methods the artist used in making their art and are shown many different pieces of art from that artist.

In the DuPage Montessori kindergarten program, the children took the work of Jackson Pollack to the next level. After learning that Mr. Pollack used brushes, pitchers and other tools to splatter paint onto a large canvas the children were ready to do the same.
