A dozen Dragons showcased their artwork in the “Students for the Sea” exhibit hosted by local nonprofit Clean Ocean Access on Jan. 27, 2022. The students’ work was made with or inspired by marine debris and created over four months as part of art teacher Steve Totin’s Design Democratized afternoon activity in St. George's Connected Learning program.
Inspired by the mission of Clean Ocean Access, the students collected trash along the roads of Second Beach, according to Totin, then used some of the saved pieces as visual texture. “They rolled ink onto the debris and pressed paper onto the trash to create the collaged elements,” Totin explained.
