the Artists in Middleburg (AiM)

are proud to announce the third year of collaboration with the intensive week-long workshop with expert sculptor and instructor, Goksin Carey.


The workshop is open to all levels of experience from beginner to professional. Everyone is welcome – no previous experience in sculpture is necessary. Students of all levels work together at their own pace and receive individualized instruction from Carey. Carey has led successful equine sculpture workshops at AiM since 2014 and this will be the third year her week-long workshop will be held at the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM).


Attendees will learn the landmarks of the equine anatomy on a sculptural form, the positive and negative elements, and to sculpt "inside out" (from the bone and muscle structure to the external surface). The student’s “eye” will continue to be developed by sculpting through observation and understanding the ABC's of equine sculpting: 

A- Anatomy, 

B- Bio-mechanics,

C- Conformation.

D- Dedication
