Drawing in the Galleries (8-10 yrs + Adult)
What better way to learn to draw than to be inspired each week by our collections of drawings, prints, paintings and objects – in the galleries! Introduction to skills and techniques using a variety of tools. Child and adult caregiver work together on individual and shared projects.
AGO Children and Family Programs offer an environment that is creative, non-competitive and open-ended, allowing young artists the freedom to explore their own potential and nurture their self-esteem, while building a strong repertoire of techniques and skills. These courses are enriched by regular visits to the galleries and collections of the AGO, providing an exceptional opportunity for learning and creativity.
The philosophy of children’s art classes at the AGO is inquiry-based and focuses on an exploration of the creative process. We take a multi-media approach that allows for a diversity of art-making processes, techniques and materials. This may at times be a less traditional approach than you may expect, with skills and concepts sometimes delivered and taught through engaging, contemporary projects.
All materials are included. Students are asked to print out a copy of their receipt and gather in the Community Gallery located in the WFLC for the start of the first class. Receipt must be presented at the start of each class. Please check any oversized bags and outerwear.
