Seniors Social: Christi Belcourt and Dot Painting and Drawing

Make new art connections and spark conversations! Join us for our free virtual Seniors Social program, a live biweekly series for older adults that combines conversations with art and artmaking. The AGO believes providing opportunities to experience art and artmaking increases well-being.

For this session, we will be discussing the life, work, art and activism of Christi Belcourtpaying special attention to her piece, The Wisdom of the Universe, which has long been a crowd favourite at the AGO. We'll discuss the origins of her particular aesthetic approach, her painstaking and admirable creative process and even try out some beadwork-inspired dot painting ourselves. 

For the artmaking portion of our session, you will need: black construction paper and either acrylic paints and brushes or coloured pastels.


Live sessions will contain automated closed captions.

Closed captioning is available in this recording.

If you require further assistance, please email us at [email protected]

Automated captioning is available for all online programs. Please provide three weeks advance notice for requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for AGO programming. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please contact us to make a request for these accommodations.
