Make new art connections and spark conversations! If you are an older adult, join us for the virtual Seniors Social Program, a monthly series that combines conversations with art and art making.The AGO believes that providing opportunities to experience art and art making increases wellbeing.

In this program we will explore cultivated gardens, picked flowers and two of the first women to achieve success as professional artists in Canada, Mary Hiester Reid and Helen Galloway McNicoll. 

Inspired by The Open Door: Mary Hiester Reid and Helen Galloway McNicollcurrently on at the AGO, we will explore painting or drawing an impressionistic view of everyday objects by smudging and erasing to create reflections and sharpened edges.

This series has three parts: a conversation about art, an art instruction tutorial and an art making video inviting you to make an artwork inspired by the conversation. Watch all three videos at once, or at your own pace. Share your artworks with us at #AGOmakes.
