Drain smART Gloucester Schools Project is a fun and inspirational art project brought together through collaboration between Seaside Sustainability, the Gloucester Education Foundation, and the Gloucester Clean City Commission. Our mission is to educate the public by utilizing an accessible method- all one has to do is walk by a mural to receive its message!
These murals will encourage passerby not to pollute by acting as a reminder that all trash and harmful chemicals travel directly into the ocean through these drains. While hoping to reduce the amount of pollutants entering waterways, we also want to increase public knowledge of storm water and storm drains.
Murals are highly visible and contain an aesthetic quality that will catch the eye of any passerby, sparking an awareness towards marine debris and sense of stewardship for our local marine resources.
Tasteful murals such as those shown below, have been implemented successfully across the country and have yielded positive results.
WANT TO PAINT?
School approved teams, groups, or classes, will paint pre-approved ocean-themed murals on and around storm drains on pre-approved Gloucester Public Schools grounds. We are also open to working with schools outside of Gloucester.
Supplies and instruction are provided! For more information, please contact Eric Magers at
