Target demographics: Annually, Gage serves over 10,000 members of our community through educational and community programs in the visual arts. Our Youth Prorgrams engage young artists ages 6 to 18 and our open enrollment Adult Programs draw artists of all skill levels from beginners to professionals. Gage year-long ateliers provide professional training in drawing and painting to a core group of 40 artists who work in on-site studios under the mentorship of master teaching artists.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Each year, Gage awards $160,000 in tuition relief to over 300 deserving students.

Guided by the belief that artists are made, not born, Gage strives to educate, enrich and engage artists and the community in the visual arts. Gage offers instruction in the principles of drawing, painting and sculpting and is dedicated to helping students of all ages and skill levels realize themselves as artists in contemporary society

Gage Youth Programs offer practical art instruction in drawing, painting and 3-D design for 6 to 18 year old artists.

In spite of the difficult economy, Gage has shown strong enrollment patterns this year with an increase of 12% in its adult classes.
