Help make visual sense of wonder and calamity by getting into the Sketch Book & Journaling habit! Learn techniques such as stenciling, collage, shading and perspective to express thoughts, ideas, and things you didn't even know you were thinking about. Together we will explore themes such as music, nature, quotes, pattern, childhood, family and beauty (Or, we'll just sew a self-portrait in crimson colored thread!) Each class begins with show-and-tell, plus a slide show that compliments both art technique lessons and longer assignments of that day. Short free-writing sessions will also get us into the groove. This is a great class to take to help loosen up and flex your visual art muscles; a sense of play can bring us face-to-face with our Muse who has been waiting. Optional homework is assigned, plus a supportive group critique at the end of each class.

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.
