Seniors Social: Spring Flowers

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.

In honour of Spring, let’s bring on the May Flowers. In this session, we will look at Heinrich and Angelika Hoerle‘s wall paper samples along with and Oriental Poppies by Laura Muntz Lyall. We’ll consider different types of flowers and what they may represent throughout art history and today. We’ll then explore our own creations using chalk or oil pastels on coloured paper. 

Materials: 

  • Chalk or oil pastels pastels
  • Fresh live flowers or photos of some of your favorite flowers 
  • Coloured paper 
  • Paper towel
  • Q-tip

  • Exacto blade if using oils
