Sculpting meets storytelling in this class as young artists draw inspiration from classic claymations such as Wallace and Gromit. With full access to CMA’s ever-popular Clay Bar, young artists will learn how to create bendable and movable modeling clay figures for their own animations. Using armature wire, modeling clay, and cardboard, they will create amazing characters and sets, then take them into CMA’s Media Lab, a fully stocked animation studio where they can bring their characters to life!
