Seniors Social: Windswept Landscape

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.

Canadians talk about it all the time: the weather. How should we represent weather, our connection to the sun and sky, the movement of wind and clouds? Two Canadian artists who created distinctive ‘portraits’ of weather in their art are Kazuo Nakamura and Paterson Ewen. In this session, we’ll dive deeply into what it means to live in a place with different weather experiences and create a sky drawing.

Drawing Exercise: What’s outside the window right now or a remembered significant weather event you experienced?
