As the figure is the Universal Subject, the One, so the portrait is the Unique Object, the one, the reflection of the Other. In the History of Snow Flakes, it is said, no two are identical. And yet, are not all, snow flakes? If we would understand the individual then, must we not come to know the genus? Thus, Portrait Drawing in Pencil, a weeklong Gage Academy workshop with Tony Ryder, is a general review of the principles (shape, movement, form and light) and methods of pencil drawing (block-in, contour and shading) applied to the rendition of the likeness of a human being (or, rather the shoulders, neck, head, features, hair and costume of the model) whose very identity is different from all others, and whose appearance is distinct in every kind of light and from every point of view.

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.
