Sculpt a Creature Contest

Are the dog days of summer getting you down? Join us in beating the heat with our Sculpt a Creature Contest at The Paint Spot! This summer, we’re challenging youth to make a creature out of air-dry or polymer clay that we’ll display in store! This is the time to be creative, think unconventionally, and bend the rules! Will your creature be real, imaginative, or a mix of both? Will it have wings, feathers, scales, three heads, or ten eyes?
