Sorry, no events found. Check back soon.


Seniors Social: John William Waterhouse

Inspired by a portrait by John William Waterhouse depicting The Lady of Shalott, we'll engage in the meticulous art of paper quilling and work together to create portraits of ourselves on the cusp of change.

Seniors Social: Jeff Thomas Portraits

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

Marks and Textures

Multidisciplinary artist Gerald Gladstone’s Galaxy paintings are a fabulous way to explore mark making and texture with geometric shapes and dissected lines. Using either a pen, sharpie, pencil or chalk we will explore the nature of overlapping forms and lines.

Line Drawings

In this program, we discuss Bertram Charles Binning's nautical world, looking at his representations of riggings and lines on sailing ships. Binning's artistic practice was inspired by his everyday encounters. Known as an excellent draughtsman, he recorded his experiences in intricate line drawings.

Painting with tones

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.

Drawing a still life with Shadows

In this program we will explore cultivated gardens, picked flowers and two of the first women to achieve success as professional artists in Canada, Mary Hiester Reid and Helen Galloway McNicoll.
