We are sad to announce that Teale Sculpture Studio closed its doors in April 2022 with the abrupt and unexpected closing of our home, the Hawthorne Arts Complex.

Many thanks to the Teale family of artists, students and teachers who sculpted in our studio these past 30 years.  It was an honor and a pleasure working with you all.


Teale Sculpture Studio Hawthorne CA

Our instructors teach the fundamentals of traditional figure sculpture—
anatomy, proportion, and structure.

We also instruct for abstract and any other forms you choose. Teale Sculpture Studio offers studio classes in clay sculpture and mixed media, fantasy character sculpture along with hammer & chisel stone carving.

All skill levels are welcome.
We are flexible, we are unique, and we look forward to seeing you in the studio.

What We Offer

If you have a project you want to commission, let us match your project’s needs with one of our artists. Or if you have a commission you have been awarded, we can help you bring it to fruition.

We also rent private artist’s studios which includes use of communal workspaces and equipment. If you choose, do what many of our members do, work out of the studio and take classes.
At Teale Sculpture Studio, you will find many options under the same roof.

Here are some of the popular classes we offer:

Clay & Mixed Media Sculpture

Beginner or advanced, figurative or stylized, large or small, with or without an armature. This class will help you create a sculpture from your imagination, drawing, or photo. Our instructor Rachel will guide you through every step using either water or oil-based clay.

Hammer & Chisel Stone Sculpture

Learn to carve like the Renaissance masters in this hammer and chisel stone sculpture class. Learn to see what naturally emerges from the stone and how to carve your vision into reality. Options for carving include: drawings, relief carving, and carving in-the-round. You will learn how to finish the stone to a shiny polish, and/or create unique textures.

Fantasy Character Sculpture

In this series, you will bring your fantastical concept to life by creating your own original character turnaround and building a free-standing armature for your creature, character or animal. The only limit is your imagination!
Visit our calendar below to reserve your spot.

Live Model Sculpting

We offer Live Model sculpting class periodically, according to student interest. We will teach you to build your armature and then sculpt the body, torso or head of our model.

We’re located inside the Hawthorne Arts Complex.
