For the past two years, we have had the pleasure of hosting artist Pat Anderson for one week of our Overnight Summer Camps! With the generous donation of her time, Pat spends the afternoons with our campers and aids them in creating plein air watercolor paintings reflecting the views around Pigeon Key and marine organisms of their choice. Pat sets up her patented Leaf Bar easels under our Solar Array, provides our campers with paint and brushes and the kids have such a blast! She always has a new challenge for them each day and this year’s campers enjoyed painting sea grape leaves, Mahi Mahi, jellies, and the Seven Mile Bridges that surround our island. It is a great addition to our summer camp program that typically involves tons of water activities and learning about the marine environment around us. We would like the thank Pat Anderson for providing our campers with an amazing art experience the past two years! Keep an eye out for the announcement of our 2019 Summer Camp dates early next year and check out Pat Anderson’s website here!
The Pigeon Key Foundation and Marine Science Center is a 501c-3 non-profit organization that was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1990. The foundation was created in 1992 to further protect the island’s long-standing history from the Henry Flagler era.
