Studio Activities

When you visit CMA during general admission hours, you can participate in studio activities going on across the museum, from fine arts, to clay sculpture, to animation, and sound design! Many of the activities are inspired by artworks on view in the gallery, famous artists, national holidays, and artistic traditions from countries across the world.

Clay Bar

Sculpt Safari animals, magical creatures, sea monsters, friendly aliens, lions, tigers, bears, and more at the Clay Bar! You dream it, you create it with the help of our talented Clay Bar Teaching Artists.

Note: The Clay Bar is one of our busiest stations, so sign up upon arrival is required. Here’s how it works on busy days:

When you arrive, head to the Clay Bar and sign your child up for a 35 minute session. Please note that to accommodate crowds on very busy days, we stagger our sign up sheet throughout the day. Once you’ve signed up, feel free to drop in on any of our other workshops until your Clay Bar time is scheduled to begin. Make sure to check in at the time of your workshop so that you don’t lose your spot.
