"Drawing is like making an expressive gesture, with the advantage of permanence" -Henri Matisse This class is for students who are familiar/experienced with the basics of drawing mechanics, and are ready to “break some rules” and find their unique style and signature. We will learn various techniques that will help us free our hands and open our minds on the way to develop our unique drawing language. Each class we will be exposed to a different stimulating technique, among them: Positive-Negative space, “Blind Drawing”, Drawing based upon looking at still photographs, self portraiture, drawing inspired by some of the biggest modern & contemporary art masters (Warhol, Alice Neel, Picasso, Schielle and more), Drawing on different surfaces, with different tools, utilising collage techniques, and beyond.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
