Northern California CCNM Art Contest
Northern California students attend classes just steps away from one of the most dramatic views of the California Coastal National Monument. A unique north coast school celebrates ocean ecosystems during the month of May. The entire school explores different marine environments through the disciplines of earth, life and physical science, as well as, language arts, music, mathematics and visual arts. During ocean month guest speakers visit the school, classes take field trips, students work on special projects, and each class immerses itself in the ocean through art, music, literacy activities, community service, and in-depth science curriculum. The CCNM inspired art contest helped kick off their ocean month activities.
Seventy three stunning pieces of artwork were submitted and judged by local artists, biologists, environmental educators and BLM staff. Choosing artwork that represents the CCNM with the best artistic composition was difficult with so many beautiful pieces to chose from.
Fourteen were selected to be part of an art show at the Trinidad Town Hall. Trinidad Bay Watershed Council is hosting their Watershed Night and the winning student artwork will be on display the evening of May 18th.
Northcoast students participated in an art contest highlighting the California Coastal National Monument. One of the most dramatic places to view the CCNM is steps from their school.
