The more than 30 campers who attended the recent Discovery Arts Camp in Presque Isle had an opportunity to take the hands-on information obtained from North Lakeland Discovery Center Naturalist Licia Johnson, combined with the rules of art design instructed by international collage artist Susan Kloch Wendlandt, to create a visual artistic interpretation of what each camper had experienced while hiking in the woods.

Licia and Susan’s collaboration is designed to offer the art camp participants a multi-disciplined program in both art and nature that launched both the artists’ abilities in creative thinking and problem-solving. 

It also encouraged artistic risk-taking, allowing each artist to cherish those artistic mistakes resulting in groundbreaking discoveries.

Licia led campers into the woods to make amazing discoveries of nature’s underworld hidden under rocks and logs, teaching the importance of our soil. 

Licia introduced a game that allowed everyone to become a “living tree” to help increase their awareness and appreciation of trees.
