Flack Atelier

“I teach a dualistic approach to drawing, constructive and observational, and the importance of both techniques to better understand how to create an image. Basically, being able to construct an image based on what we know and what we see in front of us.

— Geoff Flack

The Flack Core Drawing Atelier offers the opportunity to study core drawing fundamentals and techniques with master artist Geoff Flack.

Geoff Flack holds an MFA in drawing from the New York Academy of Art and a BFA in drawing from Colorado State University. He combines his academic expertise with his profound personal talent to make a highly focused and engaging part-time atelier program designed for artists of all levels and backgrounds wanting strong drawing skills at the core of their artistic arsenal.

The Geoff Flack Core Drawing Atelier at Gage Georgetown is a part-time atelier solely devoted to the craft of drawing with an emphasis on the human figure and portrait. Through this innovative and distinctive Atelier, student artists will gain an understanding of how to create drawings based on observation, and also from a profound understanding of construction of the human form.

This Atelier is a 3 year program:

  • Year 1- Core drawing (perspective, structural drawing, tools and techniques, observational techniques, etc)
  • Year 2- Focus on figure (figure drawing, figure structure, master copies)
  • Year 3- Individual projects (development of student vision)

Artists will develop drawings that hold their own alongside a painting or sculpture, as opposed to a drawing as a means of preparation for such mediums.


Gage Georgetown in the Equinox Studios,  (6520 5th Ave S) in the historic Georgetown neighborhood in South Seattle.
