Hi. I'm in North Florida, not far from the coastal St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, which is a marsh habitat for the re-introduction of the whooping crane. It is also known for osprey who fish in salt water, porpoise offshore & rich marine life offshore & in its abundant estuary. If you are aware of organized student art responses to the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, I woud love to know. I'm interested in traditional visual art & also video, poetry, lyrics, music composition & all the arts. Many thanks, Jan Jan Godown Annino jgaoffice at gmail dot com

Edutopia is going to be hosting a project-based learning camp this summer and we're going to use the oil spill as the theme. Educators in all areas and grade levels will be invited to collaborate on the design of one or more projects to bring back to the classroom. I hope you'll join us. More info on that coming shortly.

Thank you Betty for a great kick off to the beginning of Sept. 2010. A wonderfully creative and beautiful way to think about our nature, and how quickly it can all be destroyed. I am looking forward to learning more.

Painter Shaun MacLean Marrow has started a series of paintings/photographs/video mimicking the overall media effects of the GOM oil spill.
