Animart: Clay Sloth

Animart: Clay Sloth

"Animart" is animal inspired art! Each month this summer features a virtual workshop just for teens to explore the intersection of art & form with animals as the subject. Be creative all summer long!

This month, sculpt a friendly sloth with air dry clay. Pop up Art School will teach you how to build a sloth using basic forms and add texture to bring your sloth to life. You'll then finish your sloth with acrylic paint on wet clay. Free for teens entering grades 6-12.


  • Kits for this workshop are provided by the library. You'll be notified through email about the pickup process in advance of the event.
  • Printed PDF (will be emailed or provided in advance of the workshop)
  • Paper towel (you supply)
  • Something to cover your table (you supply)
  • Smock or apron – acrylic paint is permanent when it dries on fabric (you supply)
  • A cup of water for rinsing brush (you supply)
