Learn how to draw the figure with greater accuracy and efficiency, to transform this complex subject into strong forms, incisive line, and simplified areas of dark and light. You gain confidence and skill practicing how to rapidly grasp and set down the essentials, while doing away with fussiness and extraneous detail. We will be working with the high contrast mixed media of charcoal and white chalk on brown paper, moving from a review of drawing basics, to practice with the nude figure, to multiple sketches and several finished pieces of male and female models posed in inspiring interior set ups. Specific areas of study will be the head and face, drapery and clothing, the key use of outlines and hard vs soft edges, and the creation of texture, atmosphere, and space in your drawing.

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.
