Art Enables: Abstract Art

Wednesday May 4, 2 - 3:30 pm

This workshop series supports participants who identify as having intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Recommended age group: 14+

Join us on Zoom for an interactive art-making workshop that supports the artistic talents of artists with a variety of abilities. In this online virtual studio, we will take a look at artworks from the AGO collection and have fun drawing together!

For this session we will explore abstract art. Starting with mark-making, and thinking about shapes and lines and repeated shapes, we’ll make drawings that describe feelings and thoughts and sensations. We’ll look at the work of K.M. Graham who was influenced by the Arctic landscape, and Kazuo Nakamura, who was influenced by mathematics and created geometric structures for his paintings of places, and Gerald Gladstone, whose soft linear drawings seem to move us through space.  

This is an Accessible Event, supported with Closed Captioning. Please contact us with questions. Learn More.
