Claymation Creativity Workshops in Morocco
to Aug 9

Claymation Creativity Workshops in Morocco

The Claymation Creativity Workshop aims to work with youth to share their diverse histories and cultural stories through the use of stop-motion animation. During the workshop, each participant will work together in groups to create a short animated film using the technology of an ipad. Clay will be the primary source of material and each participant will learn the fundamentals of storytelling and animation. In partnership with the US Embassy, Rabat (Morocco).

L’Atelier de création “Claymation” vise à permettre aux jeunes de partager leurs histoires culturelles et individuelles à l’aide de l’animation image par image. Pendant l’atelier, les participants travailleront en groupes pour créer un court-métrage d’animation utilisant la technologie d’un iPad. La pâte à modeler sera la principale matière et chaque participant apprendra les bases de la narration et de l’animation. En Partenariat avec l’Ambassade des États-Unis au Maroc.

Small Favors X at The Clay Studio
to May 31

Small Favors X at The Clay Studio

Just one more week for this exhibition! Check it out!


The Clay Studio celebrates the 10th anniversary of Small Favors, an exhibition that challenges artists to work in a different scale. This exhibition provides high-quality artworks at an accessible price to art enthusiasts of all ages, and runs from April 3 – 26, 2015.  

Since 2006, The Clay Studio has held Small Favors annually as a way to engage artists in new and exciting ways by providing a 4” acrylic cube that places a limitation in scale that must be rigorously adhered to (or creatively worked around). For some, the work created is similar to the artists’ normal body of work, although at a reduced scale. Others use this as an opportunity to break away from daily studio practice. Regardless of their choice, the works exhibited are incredibly varied in material, form, and aesthetics.
