For the third year, Ms. McDougall’s art class at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) were tasked with designing a poster in support of CCMI’s Healthy Reefs awareness campaign. This project was an assignment to students as a way to develop artistic techniques while also working with a client, allowing students to develop transferrable life skills in support of their career path in art.
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.
Visit this virtual art gallery of the posters designed by the 2021-22 students of Ms. McDougall’s class. We hope you enjoy seeing their talent and skills at work in support of healthy coral reefs!
