Masterpieces at Home

Saturday, March 28, 2020

In this unusual time, some students and teachers have come together in a shared experience that takes advantage of this unique situation. History teacher, Julie Ransom, reached out to Class X students in an effort to to give them something fun and non-Coronavirus-related to do with their creative energies.

Students were asked to choose and recreate Renaissance masterpieces at home. 

"I'm delighted that a few of them took me up on it in their own time. Even when museums are closed and we can't get together with our friends in person, we are able to make our own art!" Ms. Ransom shared in an email.
