We will spend the first three sessions loosening up our drawing hands, unlocking our storytelling brains, and learning the secrets of comic-making with a mix of collaborative games, short strips, quick writes, and master studies; meanwhile, students are encouraged to spend their time outside of class on the hunt for inspiration with an active sketchbook practice. We'll spend the final weeks taking one story idea through every step of the comics process: each student will outline, script, thumbnail, rough, edit! edit! edit!, pencil, and ink their very own three-page comic.

Gage Academy of Art acknowledges the Coast Salish Peoples as the original inhabitants of this area and connecting waterways. We understand the land that Gage occupies is unceded territory and that today many Indigenous peoples live here and without their stewardship, we would not have access to this space. We honor the Coast Salish Peoples’ sovereignty, rights to self-determination, culture and ways of life. Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have called this territory their sacred land. We commit to learning, educating others and repairing the legacy of historically harmful relationships between non-Native and Native peoples in King County. In doing so, we will be honest, and recognize the experiences of Native peoples to include genocide, forced relocation, forced assimilation, and land theft. We also acknowledge Native peoples are survivors, present in today’s world, thriving. We encourage everyone here today to ask themselves: what can I do to support Indigenous communities?

In an effort to be transparent, Gage is contemplating this call to action and re-working how to best support Indigenous communities.
