LOCATION NOTE: This class will be taking place at our current Capitol Hill location, 1501 10th Ave E.

Approaching a subject to paint means the artist should include variety of elements into the equation. These overlapping factors have individual importance to look at separately. Here we are going to take a specific dive into colors in relation to forms and their angles towards light. Planes in accordance with the light source create ranges of tones. These tones carry their own color responses interacting with the light source and local color. Students will learn to create paintings that boost forms with colors along with tones. They will also learn to control wide ranges of colors in one piece without losing the homogeny. I will go through demos from simple forms like sphere and cylinder to delve into clear changes of colors with sharp shapes and the ways colors react due to changes in angles of planes receiving light. This will boost students' abilities in seeing colors regardless of the tonality of their subjects.

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.
