Body Language

July 19, 2020 – July 25, 2020

Magda Gluszek

The body is an amazing vehicle for emotional expression. Subtle gestures, such as flexed toes or curled fingers, can be used to communicate rich visual narratives. During this workshop students will produce one full-figure sculpture with a solid building technique, which they will learn to hollow and reassemble. Basic proportions and anatomy are demonstrated, as are the use of a simple armature. Small maquette studies will be created and used for inspiration and surface experimentation. Participants may take their finished green-ware home. Bring visual inspiration to class in the form of images or sketches. Open to all skill levels.


Magda Gluszek earned an MFA from the University of Florida in 2008. She lives in Lakeside, Arizona, where she is on the Art faculty and is gallery director at Northland Pioneer College. Her hikes and travels inspire her artwork. Gluszek has been a resident artist at Arrowmont as well as in Greece, Spain and Italy. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
