This was the second annual sculpture workshop held at my studio in Galisteo. What I saw and experienced was a continuation of growth for both the attending artists and myself. I'm looking forward to next year and this becoming an annual event.

Please forgive the group letter. I would like to announce the second annual Galisteo Stone Sculpture Workshop which will be held at my studio in Galisteo, New Mexico from Saturday, May 14 through Friday, May 20, 2011.
At this workshop I will provide highly focused, individual instruction with an emphasis on realistic human figurative sculpture, generous workspace, limestone carving blocks; carving tables, air and electricity for the students' tools. I will also be covering human anatomy, visualization techniques, direct stone carving using traditional and contemporary tools as well as material selection and stone characteristics. In order to keep the instructor/student-ratio small, the workshop will be limited to seven students. And with this small ratio, I will be able to work with beginning to advanced students.
The fee for the seven-day workshop is $850.00. This price does not include food, lodging, transportation or tools. We are organizing catering to the studio and there are also possibilities for lodging here in Galisteo for that week. As of this writing, three spaces are filled, so if you are interested, please let me know sooner than later and I will send you more detailed information. And if you know someone else who may be interested in attending the workshop, I'd be gratefule if you'd forward this letter or let me know how to contact them.
Last May we had our first workshop and it was a great success. If you would like to learn more about this, please visit my website: www.EdwardFleming.net and go to "Galleries/Teaching/2010 Galisteo Stone Sculpture Workshop" where you'll find images, testamonials and more information. You can also see my work on the same site and I would be glad to answer any questions you may have.
I look forward to hearing from you.
