Ages 6+ recommended

Using Model Magic clay, students will create animals, birds, portraits, masks, and strange critters. White clay may be painted and colored clays can be mixed to make a myriad of colors, creating wonderful finished projects of various subjects and sizes. Wood pieces, buttons, yarn, and found objects may also be incorporated to add interesting extra textures and different visual effects. By using a number of 3D paintings on canvas boards from the Museum’s permanent collection as inspiration, Adventurers will tap into their own clay creativity!
