Ecological workshop for children


Islomania organized ecological workshop for children about endangered and therefore protected sea species. Participants first learned about the endangered species living in Vis aquatorium: Pen shell, Giant tun, Seahorse and Posidonia. They discussed the importance of their existence for sea health. Seagrass, for example, is also known as “the lungs of the sea” as it releases oxygen into the water. In the second part of the workshop children were drawing and painting these protected species. Their coordinator was freelance artist Alma Božanić Čače.

Alma Božanić Čače graduated in Academy of fine arts in Split, department of visual arts and restoration; she lives and works in Split. Most of the paintings were created by using natural paintbrushes, made from plants, such as rosemary, lavender and different types of grasses found on Vis island.
