"Aquatic Art Workshop" started with bright colors

Eager middle school students participated in an all day art workshop which included painting, writing, ecology, and leadership. The thirty-five (35) participants painted brightly colored ocean images on their canvases.

This first part of the workshop was held at Rincón's Jorge Seda Crespo Middle School's basketball court on Saturday, March 14th.

The two part workshop will conclude at the same place on Saturday, March 28 where the young artists will complete their individual paintings and work on collective canvases.

This student-centered activity is part of the educational component of the "Coral Reef Protection through Marine Debris Removal at Reserva Marina Tres Palmas" funded by NOAA. This is a community driven effort where volunteers, agencies and NGO's, parents, teachers, students, and local businesses all participate together to help protect and educate about our precious coral reefs.

Thanks to all the parents who supported their children's participation in this beautiful initiative.

A very special thanks to volunteers: Ana M. Igartua, Oliver Bencosme from Burracas Studio, Wess Merten, Patchouly Banks, Sean Green, Danielle Barbiero, Allison Jones, Leon Richter, Enid Miranda y Eva, Yulitza Nieves, Tony Dooley from Uncharted Studios, Miriam Pérez, Miriam Juan, y Obras Públicas.

This project is made possible thanks to everyone's support!
