Artistic TrainingJackson Pollock was expelled from multiple schools, one being Los Angeles' Manual Arts High School. Pollock followed everything his brother, Charles, did. He went to studied art with Charles under Thomas Hart Benton at the Art Students League. Benton's conventional way of painting had almost no influence on Pollock. During the Great Depression, he worked for the WPA Federal Art Project.

I like Jackson Pollock because his style revolutionized art. He was one of the first artist to start "modern art". I choose Pollock because I admire his art and how different he was.
