Drawing the human form can feel intimidating and stiff, but it can also be filled with energy, life, and gesture. Animators - the artists behind your favorite Saturday cartoons - know this better than many. They are masters at creating simple, energetic, and fun figures to dance across your TV. If you’ve ever felt that figure drawing wasn’t enjoyable, or you longed to have your drawings feel more “alive,” join us in this workshop to learn about gestural figure drawing through an animator’s lens. In this workshop we will talk about shapes, line of action, anatomy shortcuts, exaggeration and more. Each day will have dedicated time to practice what was discussed with instructor feedback. At the end of this course, you’ll have drawn sheets of gesture art and improved your confidence in fluid figure drawing like an animator.

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.
