ART ATELIER: INDIAN RIVER LAGOON
 

An atelier is an early childhood space for children to express themselves artistically through multiple mediums using the language of art. The outdoor atelier houses multiple, intentionally scaffolded artistic tools and materials which children can use to create. We will be exploring a variety of materials and processes through weekly creative provocations. This semester will highlight the flora and fauna of our local treasure - the Indian River Lagoon. The course is taught by educator Denise Liberi, who holds a master's degree in arts education. 

URBAN GARDENING AND ANIMAL CARE
 

Students will learn concepts of sustainability, ecological balance, how to prepare soil, select seeds and plants, and even how to harvest their own vegetables, herbs, and different flowers. Students will explore the significance and value of the composter, plant hardiness and planting zones, plant propagation, proper care of seedlings, and how to care for newly transplanted additions to the garden. This semester, we will be adding the animal observations and care of our school's chickens and rabbits. The course is taught by local permaculture specialist Mikael Maynard.

MARINE BIOLOGY: ESTUARY HABITATS


In this course, students will take a deeper dive into the biology of the plant and animal species of the Indian River Lagoon and their interconnected interactions within the environment. The course will focus on three types of estuary habitats found within the lagoon: the rocky shoreline, seagrass beds, and mangrove nurseries. This course was designed specifically from feedback drawn from our student interest-inventories and will include on-site field research at the lagoon. This course is taught by Ms. Nikia Rice, who holds a Master of Science in Marine Biology, has taught at the Florida Institute of Technology, and brings over a decade of experience teaching marine science to various demographics through non-profit organizations locally and abroad.
