Artist Boat

Check this page for weekly updates to listen to recordings of the broadcasts from Artist Boat's low-power AM radio station at Browning Elementary School in Houston.  The segments are researched, written, and recorded by 4th and 5th-grade students at the school with production assistance from Artist Boat staff as part of an Eco-Art Residency on the campus.   Each segment focuses on a topic critical to ocean literacy, and each is produced and broadcast in both Spanish and English for the benefit of the local community.
