L.I.T. (Light, Inspiration and Transformation) is a 4-day mini-camp designed for middle and high school students that incorporates the concepts of Light, Inspiration and Transformation as they apply to art and science. A small sketchbook and a pencil are an invitation to discover the magic of the garden, inspiring an awareness of plant life and local ecology. Nature walks and sketching sessions will help students to develop personal stories while recording their experiences. The sketchbooks will become cherished objects, not only as visual journals but as an integral part of transforming their artistic and scientific expression into a memorable learning experience. Students will explore how art and science intersect by investigating the diverse, natural world and biology of South Florida’s ecosystem. Daily workshops will provide students with an essential toolbox to develop their skills. Daily activities will be led by Mounts Botanical Garden’s Special Projects Manager and biologist April Krebs, along with professional artists Renata Rodrigues, Marilyn Walter, Hegina Rodrigues, and Craig McInnis.
