In this 5-week evening class each student will learn to construct and observe a still life scene of their choosing. We will be reducing our palette to just simple black, white, and grey in order to get to the root of the image composition and design. We will continue to tweak our still life set up in order to find a powerful and dynamic composition to work from. Students will receive a detailed introduction to the medium of oil paint and learn how to mix and apply paint directly to the surface through multiple quick painted studies. This class is suitable for beginners and advanced students alike!

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.
