This workshop meets two consecutive Saturday afternoons. Have you ever seen painters with their easels set up outside, capturing a beautiful view? There is a fun and easy way to learn this technique and that is what you will learn in our one day workshop, offered over two weekends this quarter. For each 3 hour session you will learn how to quickly accomplish a finished painting by blocking in a scene…discovering why it is important to finish painting outside in under 2 hours (changing light), as well as learning how to quickly mix colors that match and transport your painting to and from site. This class will prepare you for a fun summer of painting outdoors…or enjoying working from photos you’ve taken in the past. First session will focus on how to capture a scene during hour one, with outside painting in Volunteer Park for the remaining two hours. The second session will focus on painting outside and developing a plein air painting into a studio work.

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.
