This class will focus on telling stories via the constructive qualities of paper, a strong yet pliable medium that supports and enhances artistic vision. We will explore both personal expression and illustration assignments using techniques such as pop-up art, paper sculpture, collage, mobiles and garlands. We will also address the necessity of photographing 3D art for print purposes. Cut, paste, staple, string and glue your way to artistic epiphanies that you could never reach without building art. Each class will consist of learning a specific art technique, a slide show to compliment the day’s class, a longer assignment and a group critique. Optional homework will also be assigned.

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.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs
