To build a community of artists working predominantly in the media of drawing, with an emphasis on the human figure, who are looking for critical discourse, instructor mentorship, and peer to peer feedback

Establishing a studio practice after completing the rigors of an art education can be a difficult and isolating endeavor. Day to day life distractions can easily take over a postgraduate’s studio practice, and without the structure of a program, can leave them feeling a bit lost. And, as you know, to hire a model with any sort of regularity is financially straining and logistically difficult to maintain.

To offer mentored sessions that meet weekly, working from a live model. These sessions include critical feedback of figurative work and personal projects. The goal is to offer postgraduate students a supportive community through group discussions and mentorship to help progress and support their studio practice.

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.
