Make new art connections and spark conversations! If you are an older adult, join us for the virtual Seniors Social Program, a monthly series that combines conversations with art and art making.The AGO believes that providing opportunities to experience art and art making increases wellbeing. 

In this program, we will explore artwork by Mary Wrinch. Wrinch was a prominent figure in the early Toronto art scene and was among the first women in the city to make a living from her art. Adventurous and independent, she was known for her daring use of colour, precise compositions, and explorations into the northern regions of Ontario. 

Inspired by Mary Wrinch: Painted from Life, currently on at the AGO, we will explore painting with a limited palette of complementary colours (blue and orange or green and red or yellow and purple), using black and white to create landscapes.

This series has three parts: a conversation about art, an art instruction tutorial and an art making video inviting you to make an artwork inspired by the conversation. Watch all three videos at once, or at your own pace. Share your artworks with us at #AGOmakes.
