13 to 18 year olds ONLY. REGISTER HERE.
Teen Art Studio (TAS), is a free, year-round, youth arts program that increases access to arts education for 1,500 King County youth, ages 13-18, who face barriers or limited access to creative outlets and who are experiencing homelessness, or are at-risk, LGBTQIA, underserved, or speak English as a second language. TAS offers 100% free weekly Friday evening drop-in sessions for teens. Professional teaching artists facilitate each session and introduce a new subject and medium—from drawing, sculpting, painting and printmaking, to visual storytelling, cartooning, and digital animation.
Support from YOU will provide resources to sustain and grow TAS and ensure that TAS meets the needs of low-income youth and youth experiencing homelessness so that they experience pivotal outcomes. In addition to developing creative skills, program participants report personal growth, improved abilities to forge strong peer relationships, and self-dedication to community involvement.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.
Land Acknowledgment: 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.
