How can principles of comics and cartooning inform our observational sketchbook work? In this weekend workshop, we will follow in the footsteps of classic illustrated journalists and members of the New Journalism movement. We will move through Volunteer Park and capture candid moments with a combination of observational work and editorial cartooning. We will surpass the limits of realism to create compound images that capture the lived experience of a place. In addition to documenting visual experience, we will focus on the totality of place-based memory—how can you represent emotions, sounds, and smells? Finally, we will share our work and insights as a group to draw inspiration from another.

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.
