Specifically, our seahorse, whose population has drastically decreased in the last years, calling into question its survival, the students of several classes embraced this project and developed artworks where they explored various materials, techniques, and supports to elaborate their works of art. The intention is for this activity to become more comprehensive, resulting in a cross-group project throughout our different schools to raise awareness for the protection of the biodiversity in the Ria Formosa, appealing to an intergenerational responsibility.

The grand opening of this wonderful exhibition is on the 17th of December at 3pm at Museu do Traje, São Brás de Alportel. The exhibition will be running until the 29th of December with the following opening hours: Mon-Fri from 10am until 1pm and Weekends as well as Holidays it is open 2pm until 5pm.

A truly unique collection of Art created by guest artists and local children inspired by these magnificent creatures. All donations will help towards the protection and rehabilitation of the Seahorse population in the Ria Formosa Algarve.
