Working from one model we will complete a series of shorter studies in limited palettes as well one-two longer (3-6 hour) poses split over two days. You will learn to observe large areas of tone and color, and to block out your drawings for composition and proportion. We will discuss anatomy and classical drawing techniques/theories of rendering as they relate to the model. The focus of the class will be on mixing limited palettes of color pencils to observe accurate color relationships in the model, rather than exact color matching. We will use a variety of limited palettes in order to practice seeing colors together as part of a whole and enabling students to use creative and non-exact color in their own work.

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.
