Nature was just starting to pop with spring colors when TCS students visited Winterthur Museum and Gardens on Friday, May 3, 2019.

We all made it through the darkness of winter, and like the trees and flowers, we emerged with a sense of new growth. It felt like a celebration.

Indoors, we enjoyed learning about art and furniture restoration and conservation, partaking in a hands-on workshop with informative docents. We toured period rooms, admiring the collections of Early American furniture. We “oohed and ahhed” at the Costumes of ‘The Crown” Collection and gained a new appreciation for soup tureens. Outside, we “took the road less traveled” meandering amongst the lilacs, hostas, rhododendrons, and the beauty of Mother Nature’s canvas. Whether it was walking through the azalea garden, climbing to the top of the castle, venturing into the quarry garden or discovering hidden wonders in the Enchanted Woods, TCS students had a blast!
