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.
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.
Paula writes – Thanks Margaret, I’ve added that fine school now, thanks for the info. OMG, wouldn’t we all LOVE to spend 4 months there!!!!! Good luck in St. Louis!
