Coral Reef Art Works

Here are some of our completed coral reef art works made from a mix of lino prints, paint and paper collage. Each artist created multiple prints of their fish to create colourful schools of fish. The fish were glued to sponges of different heights to create a 3 dimensional art work. The coral was designed and made out of coloured paper added to the background.
