We are back after a long absence. I will explain why.
Since 2012, we have had over 2 million views of our videos at http://www.YouTube.com/c/LearnSculpture
Wow! That is so hard to imagine! As it turns out:
- We have the number one presence on the internet for the topic, “learn sculpture.”
- People who never sculpted ever before have been encouraged to try. Some have shared their results and they have been amazing. That is AWESOME!
So why did the LearnSculpture.Org website disappear for over 5 years? The answer is sad beyond measure… master sculptor Charles Oldham, the sculptor of our enormously popular videos and my husband of over 39 years, passed away in May of 2014 from a chronic lung illness.
I worked alongside Charles Oldham (Chuck to family and friends) for over 39 years, and became a sculptor in my own right thanks to his guidance and constant belief in my ability. So, to the best of my ability, I will continue the legacy, knowing how much joy and inspiration it has brought to others: those hoping to become artist, or those just looking for something fun to do and share. Whatever the reason, there is always a need for art in the world as it brings us joy and hope no matter what.

My heart is saddened by this news and I am very sorry for your loss. I would like to say that I have been incredibly motivated by the session of videos and I have learned so much from the guidance and knowledge that has been shared. I have found Charles to be an inspiration and as a teacher, I have also shared his videos and the knowledge I have learned from him with my students who showed an interest or a desire to learn about sculpting. You are a blessing as well, thank you for continuing this legacy.
Tracey, thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means so much to hear how he has motivated and inspired you, you can’t imagine. I truly appreciate your kind message. Blessings to you.
