Seniors Social: Drawing a still life with Shadows

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

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.

Inspired by The Open Door: Mary Hiester Reid and Helen Galloway McNicoll, currently on at the AGO, we will explore painting or drawing an impressionistic view of everyday objects by smudging and erasing to create reflections and sharpened edges.

This series has three parts: a conversation about art, an art instruction tutorial and an art making video inviting you to make an artwork inspired by the conversation. Watch all three videos at once, or at your own pace. Share your artworks with us at #AGOmakes.

Art Conversation

Explore artworks from the AGO Collection with Art Educators and Gallery Guides, through close looking and conversation.

Art Instruction

Watch an artmaking demonstration, led by an Art Instructor, and learn how to create your own abstract landscape.

Art Making

Create art with us! Watch our Art Educator, Art Instructor, and Gallery Guides make the art project, making connections to the artwork presentation and having conversations. Each person will have varied materials at their disposal to demonstrate how to adapt to what you have available at home.
