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

Winter is often a time for slowing down, reflecting, and gathering with those you hold close–unless, of course, you’re someone who embraces the cold and snow and has a penchant for racing down fast hills on skis or a sled! In this session, we’ll explore a painting and some prints about winter; then, we’ll create our own image on paper with layering and erasing.

A snowy slope, a winter sky, blue shadows on the white ground… there are so many ways to paint or draw the scenes and activities of winter – the choice is yours! .

Materials List:

  • Paper: white 8 X 11.5” or larger

  • Pencils (HB or softer)

  • Eraser 

  • Coloured pencils or markers or chalk pastels

  • Watercolours or tempera paints and brushes
