Maritime Gloucester invites kids to a vacation week session focused on making art with recyclables - part of a week full of educational sessions during February vacation! Can you transform a water bottle into a fish, or a plastic plate into a sea turtle? Using a variety of recyclable materials, students will create their own sea creature sculptures to take home. We’ll look at a vast collection shells, bones, and exoskeletons for inspiration and discuss sea creature adaptations. As we talk about the importance of recycling, we’ll look at pictures of sea creature art made from recycled materials, such as marine debris and water bottles.
