This camp will be offered in Partnership with the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra!

Music can inspire art and art can inspire music. This unique summer camp will offer students the opportunity to create art inspired by Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) Marrowstone Music Festival students. Students will listen to recordings and sit in on live rehearsals. During this time, they will learn techniques to relate music with colors, feelings, mark making and moods. Above all else this is a camp where students will get to express what they are hearing and feeling through art. At the end of the week, the art that students created will be shared with SYSO students. 

Additionally, the work created will be displayed at Benaroya Hall for Marrowstone's final concert, August 4th.  

Note: This class will be held at two locations, both at Gage’s Capitol Hill campus as well as Shorecrest High School in Shoreline (where SYSO’s classes are held). Specifics will be shared with students as the class gets closer. Students will need to be able to get themselves to both locations.

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.
