When a malleable substance is molded to build or sculpt, it is known as clay modeling. In simple terms when a flexible material can be molded and given shape in a variety of ways we call it clay modeling. 
Clays are broadly two types- 

Hardening clays are made of substance that gives a firmness to anything that is made and makes it permanent. 
Non-hardening clays are made of flexible substance and can be adjusted.

Anyone be it children, art students, hobbyists or professionals such as potters and animators can actively model clay and make beautiful sculptures or animations with clay.
