CHeRP went to the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum for their annual holiday outing. They started with lunch at Café G and then headed to the studio to decorate boxes using different materials. After the art project they had a private tour of the museum and learned about Gardner’s life and the curation of the museum. It was a wonderful outing and experience and they would recommend it to all!
