LOCATION NOTE: This class will be taking place at our current Capitol Hill location, 1501 10th Ave E., and neighboring Volunteer Park.

Graphic novelist Gina Siciliano will teach this five-week outdoor clothed figure drawing course at Volunteer Park (weather permitting). Siciliano's award-winning book I Know What I Am: The Life and Times of Artemisia Gentileschi would not have been possible without her solid foundation of figure drawing experience. Students will focus on capturing the model in a dynamic environment with natural light, emphasizing anatomy, proportion, and gesture. Students are invited to use different mediums and experiment with different styles. Siciliano will provide demonstrations, and gentle, encouraging feedback. This course is an opportunity to practice drawing people while out and about!

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.
