Aquatic Art in Rincon

Don't miss your chance to work with Rincon's youth and help protect coral reefs for future generations.

Donate a few hours of your time to a worthwhile project as students from Rincon's Jorge Seda Crespo middle school create original artwork depicting coral reef lessons and themes. These original works will be assembled into an artbook and presented live at a local art show.

The Aquatic Art Workshop is being organized by Surfrider activist Annette Blasini as part of our NOAA funded project - Coral Reef Protection through Marine Debris Removal at Reserva Marina Tres Palmas

When you volunteer you’ll leave a footprint in the educational experience of Rincón’s youth. It’s a gift the will last a lifetime.
