Margaret Malewski, longing for figurative art in St. Louis


I am a mid-career professional who would like to pursue figurative sculpture as a new career path. I have gone through dozens of university programs in the US and nobody teaches figurative drawing or sculpture anymore!

Your site is a breath of fresh air and a great resource.

Thank you!

I just realized you are based in Gibsons, BC… I have been in Vancouver for 10 years – and been close to great schools like the Gage Academy of Art . Now I am moving to St-Louis, MO, where there is no figurative art whatsoever 😉 Sigh.

Here is a self-portrait I did years ago, as part of my Architecture studies.

Have you considered adding the Florence Academy of Art to your listing of educational resources?

I came across it in my research.

  1. Margaret,
    I live in St. Louis and went back to school as an adult for figuritve sculpture at Fontbonne. They have a pretty good department.

    I will be teaching a class at Craft Alliance on sculpting a Portrait Head in Jan.
    By the looks of your sculpture though you should be teaching me!
