This was a project done by the Upper Elementary students at The Albrook School. The students selected a famous painting and created their rendition using creative costumes and background scenery. They also wrote the backstory of what they thought might have happened right before the moment was captured in the painting. Additionally, the student’s composed and performed original monologues as the characters in the paintings.

The Albrook School was founded in 1979 as a non-profit Montessori school. We serve up to 200 children, ages two through twelve. Our School is accredited by the American Montessori Society and by the Middle States Commission on Elementary Schools. It follows the Montessori philosophy of assisting each child in developing each of his or her potentialities to the fullest. The Albrook School is located at 361 Somerville Road, Basking Ridge, NJ.
