Workshops

Seniors Social: Artistic Dots

Tuesday, May 9, 1 pm
The Dr. Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School

Make new artistic connections and spark conversations! Join us for our Seniors Social program, a monthly workshop series for older adults that combines conversations with art and artmaking. The AGO believes providing opportunities to experience art and artmaking increases well-being. This workshop is inspired by Christi Belcourt’s The Wisdom of the Universe ( 2014) and Yayoi Kusama’s INFINITY MIRRORED ROOM - LET’S SURVIVE FOREVER, (2017).

In this session we'll explore the work of two contemporary female artists whose art is both painstakingly grounded in the here and now, but also transports us to realms beyond ourselves.  During our time together, we’ll find inspiration from these artists’ visions to create dot drawings.

Materials included in the price of this workshop. 

Drawing Exercise: Dots! This exercise lets you incorporate different surfaces and an arrangement of cut-out dots into a final image you can keep.

Materials:

  • paper 8 1/2 X 11” or larger (sketchbook paper, watercolour paper etc, any of this)

  • scissors 

  • glue stick

  • glasses or cans in various sizes to use as circle templates,

  • aluminum foil

  • magazine pages; flyers; other coloured papers

  • any of the following coloured media: chalk pastels; oil pastels; coloured pencils; watercolour; acrylics
