Drawing in the Studio and the City

Barbara Fugate received her MFA in painting from Miami University of Ohio. She has exhibited in Kentucky, Washington and New York and is published in “The Best of Drawing and Sketching” by Terry Sullivan, “Landscape Painting” by Mitch Abala, and “Contemporary Drawing” by Margaret Davidson. Barbara teaches at Gage Academy of Art, and conducts art workshops in Washington and abroad. “Drawing and painting is about discovery, revealing a reality that is ever more authentic and genuine to me. What is most inspirational is the transient nature of life; things dynamic, moving, and in transition.” –Barbara Fugate

Live Model
All Levels Welcome
Gage Capitol Hill
Coming Soon
Every other week, students will alternate between drawing in class from the live model with visiting different places in the city armed with a sketchbook in an attempt to bridge studio and field practices. The breadth of this class offers the opportunity to expand upon our understanding of basic elements such as line, space, and color by applying them to unstaged and impromptu subjects in the city.
