Seniors Social: Making Our Marks

Tuesday, May 14, 1 pm
The Dr. Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School

Make new artistic connections and spark conversations. Join us for our Seniors Social: an engaging monthly workshop series for older adults. Dive into meaningful conversations weaved with art exploration and creation. At the AGO, we believe that engaging with art and expressing creativity enhances well-being. Join the conversation and let art be your guide! 

Participants will embark on a journey through the captivating temporary exhibition "Making Her Mark: A History of Women Artists in Europe 1400-1800". Explore more than 230 objects, from royal portraits to metal work, ceramics, textiles, and cabinetry, showcasing the diverse contributions of women to the visual arts of Europe. We’ll delve into works by renowned female artists and shed light on those working in factory settings or workshops, often overlooked for centuries. Following the tour, we invite you into the studio to create charcoal and chalk pastel works on large drawing paper. Here, you’ll build a composition of a current subject that reflects the interest of the artists from the Making Her Mark exhibition—bringing their spirit into our contemporary world.
