Challenging belief, or what we believe we see, is a recurring theme in the classes and workshops Moore teaches. “I’m like a fitness coach,” Moore chuckles, “I get students moving with exercises to build their skills in drawing and painting, then we do the “yoga” part where students learn to stretch how and what they perceive.”
Originally from Texas, Moore has lived in the Seattle area since 1990. She received her BA in art from West Texas A&M University then continued her study of painting at Bruchion School in Los Angeles, CA and Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, WA.
Kathleen Moore is a teaching artist at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle where she teaches beginning drawing and landscape painting. Moore delights in encouraging people to draw in outreach projects at Gage, such as Pop-up Drawing Jams and Drink & Draw events.

The beauty of nature stirs the emotions and inspires the spirit. Develop an intimate understanding of plant structure while conveying an emotional, aesthetic response to what you see. Each week, you will evaluate the compositional possibilities of the location with quick notan (a Japanese word meaning “light-dark balance”) sketches, then settle in for a sustained drawing period focusing on both distant and close-up plant forms within the stunning Washington Park Arboretum.
