Lots of Fish is an Art & Environmental Education project. We host school-year and summer youth employment programs that engage participants and community members in creating art that helps to reduce pollution in our local waterways. Initiated in 2018, we've been engaging city youth and community members to a series of art and impact through a variety of environmental art and education projects, events, presentations, and public awareness campaigns.
Creating Positive Impact by Making Art!
Environmental Art Programs and Workshops for all ages and abilities. Great for schools, festivals, and other gatherings. 1-hr to 1-week long projects are perfect fit and activity for people and our planet.
Lots of Fish programs align with municipal needs to provide public education and outreach about its storm sewer system and associated pollution sources as part of its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit. By engaging young people through hands-on, educational, public art projects and accompanying presentations, the participants gain extensive knowledge about their local watershed while creating attractive public art that draws attention to this environmental issue is an unique way.
Learn about your watershed, rivers and waterbodies. Lots of Fish community engaged Watershed Mural projects explore and interpolate the local geology, native flora and fauna, and waterbodies within our human habitat into a larger than life sized Mural Map map of your community watershed.
Community, Environment & Traffic Safety - Lots of Fish engages the public in School Zone Art projects on storm drains and crosswalks to increase public awareness about our connectedness to waterways while contributing to community beatification and school zone traffic safety. Projects are conducted with community groups, schools, educators, and artists in collaboration with city. Lots of Fish coordinate the entire process to ensure safe and high quality programs including ongoing maintenance of the artworks. Program aligns with EPA MS4 public outreach and education requirements.
Lots of Fish is an Art & Environmental Education Program that is piloting a Green Jobs for Youth summer program. The program employs youth 14 -21 yrs in water related impact projects and sustainable living practices. Educational components include Environmental Ethics and Sustainable Infrastructure in urban and suburban communities. We engage local researchers, educators, artists and public officials. We are seeking to expand the program to communities along the Quinnipiac River.
