The goal of the Vaugel Sculpture Studio is to teach students how to make great figure and portrait sculptures in clay. "I am dedicated to empowering creative beings to fulfill their sculpture dreams and desires in a relaxed studio atmosphere, using a proven geometric system of seeing, and the fine art of figure modeling." M. Vaugel
