Writing Explorations: Inspired by Illusions

Friday, March 27

Writing Explorations is a series of group workshops inspired by the AGO Collection or special exhibitions, guided by an artist-instructor. Learn to express yourself in written and visual form, building on the personal experiences and narrative strategies of great artists. Each month you’ll visit a new location in the Gallery to see a new selection of artwork.

This session, workshop participants will be encouraged to reflect, write and share their impressions of selected artwork inspired by the exhibition, Illusions: The Art of Magic.

Bring your own supplies: 11"x14" coil bound sketchbook, pencils: 2B, 4B,8B, white vinyl eraser and a pencil sharpener with a well to collect shavings.

Students are asked to meet their instructor in the Community Gallery located in the AGO's Weston Family Learning Centre. Participants must be 19 or older. Suitable for beginners.
