Seniors Social: David Blackwood Kenojuak Ashevak and Printmaking

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.

This week we dive deep into Indigenous and Canadian art in the AGO Collection to explore printmaking.  How do artists use this specific form to tell stories and evoke tension? Kenojuak Ashevak was one of this country's most highly acclaimed and innovative graphic artists. Her unique aesthetic, deeply linked to her home and knowledge of the land in Cape Dorset, is widely recognized and celebrated. David Blackwood's works frequently depict dramatic real-life narratives about hunting and shipwrecks and natural wonders from his home in Newfoundland.

For the artmaking portion of the session, you will need: a large potato, a knife to cut it, a few paperclips, paper, acrylic paint and a paintbrush, as we'll be making some of our own prints.

 

Live sessions will contain automated closed captions.

Closed captioning is available in this recording.
