Making Waves Through the Arts

  • Positive change

    A platform for youth to learn about environmental issues through art-making and creative communication, to explore their relationship with the changing seas and become advocates for positive change.

  • Towards an Artful Future

    Workshops increase environmental literacy, tools turn into climate action and learners of all abilities transform into artists.

  • Planet Leaders

    Teen Artists for Oceans build eye-catching and symbolic art in public places. Delivering powerful environmental messages from their lived experiences.

  • The Design Quest

    Teens formulate their artists statements, sharing who they are, what they made and why they. made it. We call it a "Call to Action" made for a greener planet and cleaner ocean.


"...students traded their snorkels for slogging shoes, to experience the Everglades."
