At The start of 2020, SeaQuest contacted the primary and secondary schools in Bridgend to ask if they would be interested in creating an 8 foot by 4 foot mural, to be displayed around the building site of their new facility at the harbour quarter in Porthcawl marina.
The eco-committee and art department jumped at the chance to get involved and collaborated effectively to create the beautiful mural pictured below. A dedicated and talented group of students from year 8 and 9 came up with their own thought provoking slogan, to encourage people to appreciate and protect our coastal environment. After applying a layer of emulsion paint to the wooden board, the learners used acrylic paint pens to create the detailed images. The sea creatures featured in the mural are all native to our coastline.
The Mayor was present to unveil the mural, which looks stunning in situ.
