Seniors Social: Norval Morrisseau and Cornelius Krieghoff

Tuesday, December 13, 11 AM

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.

For some of us, winter brings the desire to hibernate, slow down and take stock; for others, it’s a season of extreme sport and adventure, or represents holiday celebrations with special foods and an opportunity to connect with loved ones. What stories do you reflect on at this time of year? What aspects of winter do you find most compelling? Finding inspiration from works by Norval Morrisseau and Wilson Bentley, let’s meet up, discuss winter and create collage-based seasonal cards!

Using coloured paper, either construction or hand-painted paper, we’ll create a cut-out image that goes onto a paper substrate. It can show the complexity of a snowflake or the silhouette of a wintery beast − moose, reindeer, polar bear or owl.

Materials List:

  • Pencil, scissors,  glue stick 

  • A variety of coloured paper (could be construction paper, Canson papers, origami, wrapping paper, wallpaper or painted paper)

  • And possibly envelopes if creation is intended as a greeting card. 

Automated captioning is available for all online programs. Please provide three weeks advance notice for requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for AGO programming. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please contact us to make a request for these accommodations. Learn more about accessibility at the AGO.
