Program Content & Objectives

The Geoff Flack Core Drawing Atelier at Gage Georgetown is a part-time atelier solely devoted to the craft of drawing with an emphasis on the human figure and portrait. Through this innovative and distinctive Atelier, student artists will gain an understanding of how to create drawings based on observation, and also from a profound understanding of construction of the human form.

The Flack Core Drawing Atelier offers the opportunity to study core drawing fundamentals and techniques with master artist Geoff Flack.

Geoff Flack holds an MFA in drawing from the New York Academy of Art and a BFA in drawing from Colorado State University. He combines his academic expertise with his profound personal talent to make a highly focused and engaging part-time atelier program designed for artists of all levels and backgrounds wanting strong drawing skills at the core of their artistic arsenal.

Time Commitment

This Atelier is a 3 year program:

  • Year 1- Core drawing (perspective, structural drawing, tools and techniques, observational techniques, etc)
  • Year 2- Focus on figure (figure drawing, figure structure, master copies)
  • Year 3- Individual projects (development of student vision)

Artists will develop drawings that hold their own alongside a painting or sculpture, as opposed to a drawing as a means of preparation for such mediums.

Atelier Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday 9:30am - 4:30pm (Instructed) and Wednesday 9:30am - 12:30pm (Uninstructed). Students will have access to a model between 9-15 hours per week and personal studio spaces available.

Fall: Start date in September.
Winter: Start date in January.
Spring: Start date in April.
Exact Start Dates TBD at instructor's discretion.

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.
