Writing Explorations Inspired by Vija Celmins

Friday July 26

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, facilitated by Kelley Aitken, workshop participants will be encouraged to reflect, write and share their impressions of selected artwork inspired by the exhibition, VIJA CELMINS: TO FIX THE IMAGE IN MEMORY

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 print out a copy of their receipt and meet your instructor in the Community Gallery located in the AGO's Weston Family Learning Centre. Participants must be 19 or older. Suitable for beginners.
