In this 5-week class, we will focus on various techniques to abstract a landscape. Using examples from a different artist each week, we will explore the methods they use to create abstraction in their landscape paintings. We will work from photos as well as our imagination. The goal is to capture the feeling of a place – how it impacts you personally. All demos will be done with watercolor, but students can participate with any watermedia. Classes are supplemented with slide presentations, demo recordings, handouts, and group critiques of work done in and out of class.

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.
