Gage Academy of Art is always searching for experienced figure and portrait models. Models are essential at Gage Academy where drawing, painting, and sculpture relies on live models in the classroom. Gage is looking for models of all genders, ethnicities, ages, backgrounds, and sizes to enhance the learning experience and visual vocabulary.
We consider and hire models as needed and on a rolling basis. We encourage interested models to fill out the Model Application to be considered for a future figure or portrait modeling positions at Gage. Only fully completed applications will be considered.

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.
