52 intrepid students from Sacred Heart School in Lake Worth explored the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge for The Everglades: Through the Eyes of Children, a photo project with The Everglades Foundation and the Norton Museum of Art. Ten area professionals came along to teach them how to frame images while observing such animals as alligators and egrets. “The students are shooting from their vision,” said Candace Tamposi, principal of Sacred Heart School. “Some of them have never seen the Everglades. It’s a big deal and the kids are proud of their work.” The best 24 will be displayed on January 24 at Findlay Galleries in Palm Beach with the top three students receiving their very own cameras! Sacred Heart students follow a STEM curriculum with an emphasis on science and environmental education.
