Who is Gary Faigin and what is Gage Academy of Art?
Once upon a time, if you wanted to be an artist, you studied drawing from life. All the greats did it. But by the mid- 20th century, its importance in art training had weakened. Gary Faigin founded Seattle’s Gage Academy of Art to focus on this essential foundation element. 25 years later, Gage offers classes, programs and art activities for all ages and skill levels. Gary is a fascinating person himself – a painter, a teacher, a writer, and a great story teller. Find out more in this conversation.
