Gage Academy of Art
February 13, 2010
I've been privileged to be part of this bastion of creativity for over 12 years. It is by no means just a teaching venue for me, but a creative community that has enriched my artistic life on every level. I would not be where I am today were it not for Gage Academy -- from the enriching relationships I have with the students to the support I have received from all the great instructors. From my perspective -- as an instructor who “gives” to the students and an artist who “takes” from the staff and other instructors -- Gage is truly committed to championing art-making in their community. A survey of all they have to offer demonstrates this, from the free public lectures and exhibits to the Children’s Academy. Call me biased, but I believe Gage is THE place to study art in the Northwest.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
... watching it grow and expand over the years, to be more eclectic and think outside the box.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
... extraordinarily helpful. I think Gage must select carefully to get these kinds of people working behind the scenes.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
... get it's name out there more effectively and become more recognized; and lower the cost of it's classes.
