The goal of the Vaugel Sculpture Studio is to teach each student how to find the creativity in the world that lives in each of them and make great figure and portrait sculptures using techniques that are based on knowledge, anatomy, structure, and proven to work.

"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
