To showcase the abundant marine life and unique habitats of the Oregon Coast the series of workshops will be focused around Oregon’s Marine Reserves and Protected Areas, special areas that are dedicated to conservation and scientific research. Each of the virtual workshops, which run from July 29-August 26, will focus on one of Oregon’s marine reserves and protected areas – Cape Falcon, Cascade Head, Otter Rock, Cape Perpetua and Redfish Rocks. Participants of all ages are invited to learn from a scientist, community member and resource manager about these places and creatures. Following will be a fun and instructive art class where participants, utilizing readily available art supplies, will create small works of art that will later be collected to create a stunning collaborative 25-foot diameter mobile for exhibition at the Elisabeth Jones Art Center!
