ActivitiesFine Arts


Mrs. DuPont

I’m an artist and a teacher, ready to remind my students why they love art! I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a bachelor’s degree in art education in 2004. That summer, I married Brian and moved to Chicagoland, where I taught middle school art for the first time. In 2007, I became a mother, and we moved to Chillicothe, where I stayed home with my two boys until the littlest began kindergarten, when I came to teach art in Morton in 2015. In the meantime, I taught art lessons at the Crossword Café, an after-school youth center in Chillicothe. I also dabbled in illustration and watercolor, where my passion for art only grew! I am thrilled to be here in Morton, teaching in the classroom again!



In art class, we will build skills in drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, and sculpture. We’ll learn how to think like an artist, talk like an artist, and act like an artist. We’ll learn from the lives of artists who came before us in history, as well as working artists today. We’ll gain a new awareness of art in our daily lives and the careers that bring us art. All the while, we’ll be expressing ourselves and finding our artistic voice!
