Sculpt a clay heart for someone you love!

Get your hands messy and make clay creations to bring home!

Our Clay Studio offers children and adults alike the chance to create art with their hands. Working with clay is not only fun, but is a great way to strengthen motor skills and improve dexterity.

Clay Studio now has brand-new tables and stools! In keeping with our mission of sparking creativity and critical thinking, the Museum collaborated with SDSU School of Art + Design students for the past year to enhance our popular outdoor studio space. Students in SDSU’s first ever course, Community Partnership in Applied Design, along with Assistant Professor Adam J. Manley, designed prototypes and fabricated a new set of tables and stools for children and their caregivers. The collaboration honed students’ design skills, provided workforce development opportunities and resulted in a functional environment that fosters creativity and imagination in our community. This project was made possible in part by the Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation and Tony and Cristina Yahyai.
