Our goals are to learn about lighthouses their purposes, architecture, history, stories of their keepers through art, to take a Lighthouse boat tour to see lights up close and to develop a student book of participant's works to remember the experience. The child and her/his mentor will be learning about Lighthouses together and developing lifelong bonds using Lighthouses as a catalyst for creating lasting memories! As there are over 15,000 Lighthouses in the world, we are hoping a mutual interest will develop between a child and his/her mentor:

  • to see and climb lights together
  • to possibly inspire a maritime career in a child
  • to learn together through art to work together using STEAM...
