About Gage Academy of Art

Our Vision:

Gage envisions a world where the visual arts are valued as a vital human endeavor.

Our Core Belief:

Gage believes artists are made, not born.


Gage educates, enriches, and transforms our community through the visual arts.

An innovative and accessible contemporary Seattle art school, Gage Academy of Art is unapologetically independent and fiercely committed to excellence in the fields of painting, drawing, sculpting, and printmaking. Celebrating 30 years of service to the community, at Gage we believe in personal mentorship and skills-based studio instruction, delivered by brilliant teaching artists with charcoal dust under their nails. Whether you are a curious newcomer or a professional artist, a working creative or a retired passion-seeker, Gage is open to anyone with the desire of learning.

Best known for its unique Atelier programs as well as its youth summer programs, Gage enables students to work closely with a master instructor either for the length of a workshop or over the span of many years; Gage is proud to be one of the few institutions in the country offering this time-honored method of training.

We invite art makers of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to become part of a vibrant learning community, with access to the best art instruction, free programs, lectures, demos, events and enrichment all year long.

We are ready when you are!
