This 10-week class is set up for the developing and the experienced artist looking to create better representations of the world in front of them. In virtually every scenario of rendering an object or a place, there is the challenge of credible orientation of that object and the space it exists within. The purpose of this course is to gain an understanding how to solve these problems and practice the methods applied when creating pictorial spaces. Drawing Places is an introduction to the principles of linear perspective and the traditional processes used to impress an illusion of depth and three-dimensions on a flat surface. Working inventively and perceptually, students will work step by step with the instructor to create drawings depicting form and space while utilizing the elements of one and two-point perspective. Students will leave with the ability to solve challenging pictorial problems involving foreshortened forms and depth of space.

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.
