The hands are by far one of the most expressive and complex parts of the human body. Hands well-drawn or sculpted in figurative art immensely enhance the overall quality of the piece; whereas poorly rendered hands can destroy what may otherwise be a strong piece. This workshop will offer students a thorough overview of how to draw hands with accuracy and expression. Anatomy of the hand, from the skeleton to the veins, will add an in-depth understanding of and appreciation for the intricate structure that gives the human hand its incredible capabilities and beautiful form. Taking both Part 1 and Part 2 of the workshops is recommended, but if desired either workshop can be taken independently

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.
