Students from the Canterbury School of Visual Arts (CSVA) have partnered with Turner Contemporary in Margate to deliver a project raising awareness of marine pollution among school children.

As part of Children’s Art Week at the gallery, students will be leading workshops to encourage children to recycle their rubbish.

The workshops will see pupils create sea creatures from recycled materials and rubbish. They will also decorate scales made from paper plates to adorn a massive cardboard fish.

In addition, school children will be asked to come up with a name for the Big Fish which was made by students from CSVA. The workshop sessions aim to be a fun and informative way of providing environmental education through art.

Kleberson de Souza, head of art at Canterbury College’s CSVA, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the newly launched CSVA to collaborate with an internationally renowned gallery, Turner Contemporary.

“We hope the big fish inspires children to get creative while providing an important educational experience that raises awareness of marine pollution. It’s also great experience for our students, helping them develop a broader range of skills while delivering these innovative workshops.”

The big fish will be at the gallery on Thursday, June 15, and three workshop sessions will be available at 10-11.30am, 11.30-1pm, and 1-2.30pm.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
