For the past 30 years, Teale Sculpture Studio has been home to many artists producing figurative and abstract work in the Los Angeles area. We’re now located in the Hawthorne Arts Complex.

Our instructors teach the fundamentals of traditional figure sculpture—anatomy, proportion, and structure. We also instruct for abstract and any other forms you choose. We have beginner to advanced classes in clay sculpture and mixed media, along with drawing, and specialized seminars. We are flexible, we are unique, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

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 with 24/7 access, private artist’s studios, or lockers and 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 Studio, you will find many options under the same roof. Here are some of the popular classes we offer:


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 instructors, Suanne and Melanie, will guide you through every step with their own special brand of creativity, using either water or oil-based clay.


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. E-mail the studio for details.


This Saturday morning class is designed to tickle your kids’ imagination and introduce them to the wonderful world of art through clay, paint and pencil.  All skill levels are welcome in this fun four-hour class.
