Working from a model staged within a larger tableau/set up/room we will complete a series of color collages using color-aid paper. Color-aid paper is a set of pre-colored paper in 314 colors organized using hue, value and saturation. It is designed to help students think about color relationships. We will use it to help us structure our observations from the model using limited color palettes and thinking in terms of color relationships rather than exact matching. The limited range of colors necessitated by collage will force us to move beyond simply matching colors when working from life. Students will come away with the skills to use color with more confidence, agency and creativity in their own work.

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.
