Countercurrent Art+Science Workshops
Artists: Selected Participating Artists
Status: In Pilot Stage
Dates: May 2018 - June 2019
Countercurrent’s Art+Science Workshops will engage underserved high school age youths in Watsonville, CA in issues of ocean sustainability through the collaborative design and fabrication of public environmental art installations. In each workshop youth participants will first be exposed to cutting edge ocean science being conducted in the Monterey Bay, followed by hands-on sculpture training from local arts professionals using reclaimed materials to share narratives about the ocean environment. Countercurrent’s Art+Science Workshops will leverage the student access and facilities of the existing Watsonville Environmental Science Workshop and will amplify the missions of both organizations to engage underserved youths in issues of environmental sustainability.
