Introduction to Painting (8-13 yrs)
Build on your child’s love of painting! In this introductory class, students explore this expressive medium, focusing on colour, composition, texture and brushwork while experimenting with a variety of paints, processes and tools.
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. This course meets in the AGO's Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School.
ATTENTION: No class on Sunday May 20.
