ANATOMY IN CLAY® Centers
Denver Education Center
Is a nonprofit facility created to help empower people to engage in profound learning using your hands to build muscles on models, learning life-long skills of critical thinking, curiosity and knowledge.
Through the simple activity of building anatomy with clay, we are able to grasp basic concepts or our form and function, the core fundamentals of our nature. It is an event that changes understanding and amazement of how the body functions.
The Center works with other non-profit organizations to assist student in building meaningful self-esteem, body awareness and health knowledge at all age levels. Programs in development include studying the potential of individual self-awareness as preventative health application and as a treatment for injury and pain.
The Anatomy In Clay® Learning System is in use in thousands of classrooms world-wide. As supported by multiple research studies, it is a “best practice” for success in learning anatomy. In addition to better testing and retention, students appreciate the superior accessibility, satisfaction, and enjoyment gained with this kinesthetic process.
At our Anatomy in Clay® Center in Denver, we offer workshops in which participants must depend on critical thinking and functional problem solving as they explore gross anatomy. They form muscles in clay onto scaled-down skeletal models, actively assessing—both cognitively and in their own bodies—whether the forms they create will work. They are empowered to form bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and internal anatomy, isolated or integrated into a whole system.
We work with programs from other institutions to provide training and curricula research in gross anatomy education. We also collaborate with other non-profits to assist, expand, or add content in this subject area.

Anatomy In Clay® Centers welcomes inquiries about cooperative ventures from new and existing organizations.
Participants of all ages and from around the world have experienced this groundbreaking approach to learning, with interests and applications spanning anatomy, physiology, biology, health care, psychology, education, sports and sports training, body work (movement therapy, yoga, Pilates, and others), the performing arts and more.
Anatomy has traditionally been a subject limited to specialists, with knowledge concentrated in the field of medicine. Now, through the Anatomy In Clay® Learning System it is possible for everyone to benefitt from the advice of Socrates: “Know Thyself.”
