Gage teaching artists are exhibiting artists chosen for their merit as artists and teachers. Their goal is to communicate the "how" and "why" of drawing, painting, sculpting and art theory across a range of styles and media. Should you have questions about a particular instructor, we suggest you review their work and background by following the links below.
