The sketchbook is a tool for artists of any medium, as useful and necessary as paintbrushes or clay. Yet many artists find the sketchbook a challenge to maintain. In this class you’ll practice compelling techniques for building a unique and personal sketchbook habit. Steven Reddy, author of Everyday Sketching and Drawing, has published several artbooks compiled from hundreds of sketchbooks filled over several decades. This class explores dozens of inspiring ideas to motivate artists to use the sketchbook as a direct record and expression of concepts and images that can birth larger, more developed artistic projects, or can be viewed as complete artworks on their own.

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.
