Banyutowo village located at Central Java, is one of the villages on the North Coast of Java (Pantura) where the community settlements are directly in contact with the coastline. Most of the people live from the maritime world either as fishermen or other work related to the distribution and processing of marine products. Maritime culture has thus been embedded in the daily lives of the people in Banyutowo Village and affects various aspects of life. This article aims to explain how maritime culture is socialized to the youth through art as a medium that is familiar with their world and their interest, so that knowledge and local wisdom can continue to be owned by the community. This study uses qualitative methods with in-depth interview techniques and field observations. The results of the research show that: 1) maritime culture literacy efforts can be done through art such as drawing, photography and drama; 2) Through the arts of drawing, photography and drama performances that were introduced and performed, children in Banyutowo Village were able to construct their knowledge and awareness about the marine environment where they lived based on what they see, what they feel, and what they experience; 3) They can express their knowledge and awareness with some activities such as drawing, photographs and drama performances which they performed together on the stage exhibition at the village hall.
