Seniors Social: Inspired by Arnold Newman

Tuesday, December 12, 1 pm
Zoom

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. 

Arnold Newman's rise to fame came about largely because of the commissions he received from magazines. In this session, we’ll explore the power of black and white portraiture, and Newman's particular "environmental" approach to capturing the essence of his subjects.  

We'll ask participants to come to this session with a photograph of someone important in your life (a celebrity, political figure, family member/friend, anything goes!). We'll ask folks to consider how you might best situate this individual to capture their personality. Is there some object that helps define them and/or your relationship to them? Participants will be guided through creating a value drawing that helps capture the dramatic impact of black and white portraiture. 

For requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for online and onsite programming, please provide three weeks notice in advance of the event date. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please note that automated captioning is available for all online programs. For onsite visits, the AGO offers these supports for an accessible visit. Please contact us to make a request for these or other accessibility accommodations. Learn more about accessibility at the AGO.
