I took my GT 8th grade art students to the Hampton Mansion. Our school is named after the family who built the mansion! The students took an hour tour of the mansion and then were able to be artists for the day. They created beautiful works that will be entered into the Hampton Mansion Juried Art Exhibit.
When I asked the students how they felt about being able to be an artist for the day, they responses were amazing. They discussed how vital it was to be able to have freedom and time to create. They all asked if we could do it more often.
Here are some photos from our day!
