In this course we will discover the many varied nuances of making art through collage and glued paper and fabric materials. We will work on different surfaces, both rag paper and panel and in all artistic styles. We will research the history of collage from Kurt Schwitters and Pablo Picasso to modern day contemporary artists that use collage as their main art form. We will explore layering, overlap, isolation, repetition, composition and surface manipulation on various sub straights, with the eventual introduction, integration and addition of acrylic paint mediums. All levels welcome.

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.
