In this 5-week evening class we will be using the language of color blocking to construct and paint a still-life scene. We will be learning to observe large shapes of light and dark in our still life set-ups and how these shapes interact with the environment each object sits within. We will explore complementary color palettes to help us notice the temperature of light and find the playful interaction between warm light vs. cool shadows. We will begin by working through small quick oil studies and then progress to a longer painting where we will learn to observe, mix and paint the temperature of light. This class will build on my still life painting-VALUE class and it is therefore encouraged that you take my still life painting-VALUE class prior progressing to this color unit, but is by no means mandatory.

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.
