Monticello Highlights Elementary School Artists

Posted: Updated:

Monticello is highlighting the artwork of Charlottesville elementary school students.

In November, third grade students from Charlottesville's six elementary schools visited Monticello to learn about Thomas Jefferson's garden. They made posters to remember their visit, and now that artwork is on display in Monticello's education center.

"It was the year of the garden here at Monticello and so we incorporated that into their visit and they were able to go into the garden, measure things, so they were doing math and science as well as investigating, looking at the garden," said Julie Neal, a Monticello guide.

The tour tied in with the schools' community gardens.

Students also learned about plants they've never seen before, since the garden is kept as it was in Jefferson's time.

The art exhibit will be on display every weekend through January 27.
