At Gage Academy of Art we believe that artists are made and not born. For this very reason, it is our mission to support all artists-in-the-making through opportunities for financial assistance.

Gage raises and allocates funds to create opportunities for adults, teens, and youth to pursue their dream of becoming an artist and cultivating their artistic growth.

Gage Academy of Art Scholarships Program embodies the school’s commitment to make art and art-making accessible to everyone. Each year, Gage dedicates financial resources to make it possible for students who otherwise could not afford to participate to take our classes and workshops.

Gage Scholarships are designed as both need- and merit- based financial aids, granted annually by a review panel.

Donor Scholarships

Gage's Donor-supported Scholarships embody the school's mission to educate, enrich, and engage the community by providing access to art education for any student who wishes to begin or pursue their artistic practice. Our donor-supported scholarships are made possible only through the generosity of individual donors in our community. The donor-supported scholarship applications are carefully reviewed and granted annually by a panel of local and national art peers.

Access Fund Scholarships

Gage Academy of Art is proud to launch a new Access Fund. The Access Fund will support free classes for teens and assist aspiring artists from diverse backgrounds with the financial means to experience Gage's art education. The Access Fund will also enable Gage to advance its commitment to justly compensate and retain our esteemed faculty, while providing professional opportunities to grow young talent.

Youth Scholarships

As a non-profit arts organization, Gage Academy of Art intends to serve all motivated students who desire to receive an arts education. We offer full scholarships to students who show financial need. Gage Academy of Art admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Gage. These scholarships are intended for Youth Programs.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

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.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
