Art Enables Workshop: Winter Wonderlands

Wednesday, February 2, 2 pm

Join in an AGO Zoom Workshop for some wonderful adventures on paper.

These online workshops support participants who identify as having intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Recommended age group: 14+

This interactive artmaking workshop supports the artistic talents of diverse artists. In this online virtual studio, we will look at artworks from the AGO Collection and have fun drawing together!

Come hang out with us as we look at the way artists from across Canada and Europe have shown their experience of the natural world, or how they have described their own lives, the animals they admire or live with, the landscapes they have visited. Drawing is a way of expressing thoughts and ideas, dreams and hopes. When we draw, we are creating worlds on paper: places or realms that we can visit. What kind of worlds can you create?

In this session, we’ll explore winter along with some beautiful snowy images by Canadian artists such as Tom Thomson, W.J. Phillips, J.E.H. MacDonald, etc.

Materials list: 

  • Colouring materials (pastels, pencil crayons, markers, paints or other materials to colour)
  • Sketchbook or other drawing surface
  • Pencil and eraser
