LOCATION NOTE: This class will be taking place at our brand new South Lake Union location, 2105/2107 Westlake Ave.

This class takes a broad approach to creating single panel, sequential and abstract forms of comics. Because each artist brings their own idiosyncratic style to comic and cartoon-making, stories and anecdotes can be told in endless styles and mediums. In ways that pictures and text alone cannot, cartoons inherently contain 'breaks' between panels where the audience/reader may participate in time. Whether you have an idea for a character or a story, or have never drawn a cartoon in your life, this class will support you toward the next steps of your cartooning journey. Each class begins with a slide show that compliments both the technical exercise and longer assignment of that day. We end with class critiques, and optional homework is assigned. For the last class, each student will make photocopies of their favorite comic made during class to give the other students.

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.
