Gage Academy of Art is proud to partner with the Northwest African American Museum for a series of FREE workshops for teens ages 13-18, beginning in winter, 2016.

The series, entitled “I <3 ART,” was created to honor the Harmon & Harriet Kelley Collection of African American Art: Works on Paper.

The sixty-eight works in this exhibition date from the late 1910 to 2002 and represent just a fraction of what is contained in one of the country’s major collections of African American art.

Included are drawings, etchings, lithographs, watercolors, pastels, acrylics, gouaches, linoleum and color screen prints by such noted artists as Ron Adams, Benny Andrews, Romare Bearden, Aaron Douglas, Jacob Lawrence, Charles White, Elizabeth Catlett, John Biggers, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Eldizer Cortor, Margaret Burroughs and many other outstanding lesser known artists.

To participate in these FREE workshops you must RSVP HERE.
