Our Plastic Oceans Notebook - by Aidan
Description - This design was created by Aidan during an art and science workshop as part of the ‘Our Plastic Oceans’ project run by Crùbag, in collaboration with Taynuilt Primary School, Renuka Ramanujam, & the Scottish Association of Marine Science (SAMS).
We, the children of primary 7/6 at Taynuilt Primary School in Scotland, wanted to communicate a message:
My Design - "My design is about a representation of what I think the future will be like from my point of view.
As you can see there is a turtle that is going to eat a plastic bag and there is a lot of tiny micro plastics and a jelly fish saying your meant to eat me. The turtle is eating the plastic bag because she things it's a jelly fish.
The printing techniques I used was mono-printing and collaging. And the reason I chose the colours I chose is because there bright. They way you mono-print is you roll out block printing ink on a tray until you hear a sticky noise then you lay paper on top draw a design and voila. " - Aidan, P6, Taynuilt Primary
