Healthy Reefs Virtual Art Exhibition

1 June - 30 June

Each year, students at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) are tasked with designing a poster in support of the Central Caribbean Marine Institute’s (CCMI) Healthy Reefs awareness campaign. This project is an assignment where students develop artistic techniques while also working with a client, helping the students to develop transferrable life skills in support of their career path in art. As a bonus, students have taken renewed interest in their science classes, earning higher marks on tests as they connect their passion for art to the information about the natural world.

Over the course of several months in the fall of 2021, students practiced their techniques, spoke with CCMI staff, researched coral reefs, incorporated feedback from the client, and worked toward a final Healthy Reefs poster that was submitted as part of their portfolio for the course. This exhibition features the final projects submitted by the 2021-22 CIFEC art students.
