We will go through plans and decisions one needs to make prior to starting a painting, no matter what medium or material the students are going to work with. The course will start with a lecture on the process of a painting from the very start point; here I will talk about the role of inspirations, skills, techniques and mediums. In the lecture, students will learn how these factors can eventually affect the outcome of the finished work and how artists should be considering them. After the lecture, students will practice on choosing their subjects in terms of the objects they are picking and the ways they can look at it. Students then will learn how different sketches can contribute to the painting and what information can be delivered by the style of the sketches they are making. At the next step, I will teach students on picking the medium and preparing the proper materials from pigments, lights to even their physical abilities depending on their goals. The last step will be transferring their ideas and sketches to start the actual painting and how to utilize all the information to help them execute the best result they can. This course will only go through the preparation process and it will not execute a finished work.

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.
