Seniors Social: Moments in Modernism

Tuesday, June 11, 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 venture through a guided tour of Moments in Modernism, followed by a creative session in the gallery school. Together, we’ll explore major themes embraced by modern artists worldwide. We’ll engage in discussions on training, observations, technologies, and cultural climates led to the birth of  modern art forms like Pop Art, Abstraction, Realism, and Minimalism. In the studio, we'll use a variety of media, textural tools and techniques to capture the essence of our subjects—an approach embraced by so many modern artists.
