2-Part Summer Camp: Art AND Movement!
Art with Lara Kaminoff
Each student will design and create two paper mache masks based on a chosen duality (ex: water vs fire, organization vs chaos, funny vs serious etc). As each mask emerges so will its character and backstory. Drying times will be used to dig deeper into some classic archetypes: what does it mean to YOU to be a hero? A villian? Is night bad and daytime good? Why are we inclined to see things as black and white? Is there space to question our assumptions and tell bigger, messier, and more compassionate stories?
Movement with Parkour Visions
This class is offered in partnership with Parkour Visions!
Half the camp, students will explore stories and characters through classic parkour games. We'll discover alien planets, battle hungry alligators, and steal treasure from evil wizards. All students will learn proper technique for movements like jumping, climbing, and vaulting. Through games and challenges, we explore and expand our sense of self.
To keep everyone safe, we will be limiting the number of students in this class. More about Parkour Visions: parkourvisions.org

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.
