In this intensive 2-day workshop, you will learn a 3-stage process to drawing the human figure that will empower you to draw with confidence and authority from life as well as from imagination. We will start with a simple gestural lay-in built around the landmarks of the body, allowing us to capture the action of the pose quickly and effectively. We will then break down the figure into simple volumes that will give the figure presence and structure. We will tie everything together with special attention to how each part flows into the next following the rhythms of anatomy guided by the orchestration of shape design.
This is an information-packed workshop where the instructor will demonstrate every principle from life and the students will be able to apply what they learn as they draw from the live model, with plenty of individualized, hands-on feedback over the course of the two days.
All levels are welcome. If you're new to figure drawing, this workshop will provide you with a rock-solid foundation upon which to build your further explorations of this timeless subject-matter. If you're familiar with the figure, you will find that our approach is as effective for life drawing as it is for figure invention, bringing together construction, design, and observation into one dynamic, cohesive, and reliable process.

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.
