Seniors Social: I AM HERE

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

The AGO’s new exhibition I AM HERE: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces explores our desire to capture, share and cherish the everyday. In today’s session, we’ll take a look at how two very different artists, from two very different eras and geographical locations, using very different mediums, represented food. Together we’ll discuss what’s sizzling on the stove in our own kitchens, how food is depicted in popular culture, and why cooking is so often referred to as an “art”.  For the art component, we’ll invite you to recall a perfectly picturesque meal that was made with care and attention by you or someone else and we’ll draw our favourite meal from memory,  photos, Google or even right out of the fridge.


  • Paper 
  • Drawing or painting materials
  • Watercolour pencils are great for this, with a side of water and a paint brush to blend

This is an Accessible Event, supported with Closed Captioning. Please contact us with questions. Learn More.
