Clay-Animals

Clay Camp: Animal Magic!

Kids, spend the week at Cotuit Center for the Arts learning to make animals in clay with award winning sculptor Neil Grant! You can create a different animal each day, or if you’d like, you can even spend a few days working on that special piece. You’ll be using air dry clay, so you’ll also be able to paint some of your masterpieces!

Each day, Neil will show you how to create a different type of animal in a classroom full of music and laughter. So sign up and join in the fun!

All tools, clay and paint supplied.

Ages 8 and up.


About Neil Grant

Neil Grant is an English representational sculptor who makes fine art through a slightly different lens. The winner of the 2018 Newby Patrons Award at the National Sculpture Society’s Annual Awards Exhibition, he combines technical skill with storytelling and humor.


Neil lives on Cape Cod where he sculpts out of his studio, and is part of the teaching faculty at Cotuit Center for the Arts. Neil regularly teaches sculpture classes to kids across the Cape, and was the guest artist for children visiting this year’s Winter Art Exhibit. Working with his daughters (‘Charlie of Science’ and ‘Sophie of Slimology’), he also hosts regular slime workshops for kids throughout the year.

Our classes and workshops are open to students of all abilities and needs. We are currently unable to provide one-on-one instruction, though we will make every attempt to address accommodations for full and successful engagement whenever possible.
If a student requires individual supports, parent/guardian/PCA/teacher/ABA Therapists/etc are welcome to attend.
