Artists from Gage and the community are invited to work independently from a live, costumed or nude model, practicing drawing, painting, or sculpting the figure. No formal instruction. A studio monitor is present to time the model and set poses. Sessions last 3 hours!

We'll be having the first re-launch of Open Studios outdoors in front of the St. Mark's building on Saturday, September 25th from 9:30a-12:30p. Teaching artist Tarran Sklenar will be there to set the poses and paint/draw alongside attendees. The theme is AUTUMN! SIGN UP HERE!

Gage will be requiring full vaccination and masks (as per state-mandate) for anyone who wants to access our campus. Students will be required to provide copies of their vaccination records before entering the classroom even if open studios take place outdoors. On-site monitors will be there to check off vaccination records on behalf of the instructor. 

Become a Gage Member to receive a complementary multi-session pass upon sign-up, plus discounts on additional Open Studios!

For an individual pass for the event, it will be $15. With a Foundation membership, you get 10 complimentary open studios passes. With a Community or Masterpiece membership, you get 15 complimentary open studios passes.

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.

Non-Discrimination Policy: Gage Academy of Art does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, religion, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational and admission policies, scholarships, and any school administered programs

Gage Academy of Art is committed to social justice in a diverse democracy
