We will spend the first three sessions loosening up our drawing hands, unlocking our storytelling brains, and learning the secrets of comic-making with a mix of collaborative games, short strips, quick writes, and master studies; meanwhile, students are encouraged to spend their time outside of class on the hunt for inspiration with an active sketchbook practice. We'll spend the final weeks taking one story idea through every step of the comics process: each student will outline, script, thumbnail, rough, edit! edit! edit!, pencil, and ink their very own three-page comic.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.
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.
Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs
