Drawing doesn’t just have to be a precursor to paintings or sculpture, it is a language that holds its own next to the other visual arts. Working through a series of still life drawings, Drawing Things is designed to provide new and experienced students a foundation in drawing so that one could realize their artistic vision.
In this class, students will learn the fundamental principles of drawing from observation, develop methods to simplifying complexity and discover the techniques used to observe and interpret everyday objects into thoughtful impressions of reality. An emphasis on composition, materials and surface, and mark making will be stressed throughout as students work to construct thoughtful illusions of form and space.

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.
