A Travel Sketchbook records your adventures in a much more personal and memorable way than photos can. Get ready to document your travels in pencil, ink, and color! In this 5-week, online course, I’ll show you how to jump into travel sketching even if you’ve never sketched before! You will build your sketching skills through weekly, self-paced study of instructional videos and materials. You will also be given assignments to keep you sketching and practicing what you learn. Then, each week, we will come together as a class, over Zoom, for instructor-led critiques and Q&A.
We’ll cover landscapes, cityscapes, interiors, food, and people – all the wonderful experiences of traveling you want to remember forever!

You will learn how to:
• Conquer the fear of sketching in public.
• Sketch while traveling with non-sketchers.
• Travel with art supplies and sketch on the go.
• Capture your subject quickly.
• Develop your visual memory.
• Use pencil and/or ink for a sketch then add color.
• Incorporate notes, thoughts, and historical information to enhance your sketchbook pages.

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.
