Gage Academy of Art
An innovative and accessible contemporary art school, Gage Academy of Art is unapologetically independent and fiercely committed to excellence in the fields of painting, drawing, sculpting, and printmaking. Celebrating 30 years of service to the community, we believe in personal mentorship and skills-based studio instruction, delivered by brilliant teaching artists with charcoal dust under their nails. Whether you are a curious newcomer or a professional artist, a working creative or a retired passion-seeker, Gage is open to anyone with the desire to learn.
Best known for its unique Atelier programs as well as its youth summer programs, Gage enables students to work closely with a master instructor from the length of a workshop to the span of many years; Gage is proud to be one of the few institutions in the country offering this time-honored method of training.
We invite art makers of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to become part of a vibrant learning community, with access to the best art instruction, free programs, lectures, demos, events and enrichment all year long.
We are ready when you are.

Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
