Working with clay can be a rewarding art experience. Here is how to make clay coral reefs with your class that are very colorful.

Ceramic Coral Reefs From Clay

Working with a ball of clay, students will create a base for their coral reef. Students use half of their clay to form smaller, detailed items like barnacles, sea anemones or a starfish. The entire creation will need to dry for multiple days before they can be painted. Seal the project with ModPodge to add the finishing touches.
