ART OF DRAWING
Art of Drawing
( 4 Days) July 5 - 8, 2 - 5pm
Instructor: Kelley Aitken

Fall in love with your museum! This course combines drawing with art appreciation. Learn how to draw while in the company of master works and innovative contemporary art. Each week we'll visit an area of the AGO to work on drawing concepts and skills through exercises, observation and discussion of the art and artists on exhibition. This is a comprehensive course that provides a grounding in drawing skills and concepts while increasing your familiarity with the gallery and appreciation for the methods and subjects of its artists. We will travel through the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of the gallery, drawing in the Henry Moore room, African galleries, European salons, and Thomson and Canadiana galleries on the second floor. We'll respond to exciting contemporary work on the 4th and 5th floors, undertake value sketches in the photography galleries, and study perspective and depth under the dramatic vaulted windows of the Galleria Italia. Drawing lessons will cover: contour, cross contour and gesture; positive form and negative space; light and shadow; value; composition; proportion and perspective; and the basics of portraiture and landscape.

HOUSE MUSIC LISTENING 1
Art & Ideas: History of House
Wednesday, August 24. 7-9 pm

House music is an international genre of dance music that originated in the early 1980s. But House is more than a style of popular music: it is also a spirituality and a philosophy. Electronic equipment allowed House to take 1970s Funk and Disco and expand it to new emotional terrain. Using sampling techniques, House was a way of narrating cultural histories. The goal was to create a unique vibe inside the nightclub. This transcendent sense of togetherness is what we call "House".
Students will have an opportunity to hear a broad sampling of music accompanied by group discussion facilitated by Toronto-based artist and curator, Luis Jacob. Using painting, video, installation and photography, as well as actions in the public sphere, Luis Jacob's work invites a collision of meanings that destabilizes conventions of viewing, and opens possibilities for the creation of knowledge. Jacob has achieved an international reputation, with his work exhibited at the Taipei Biennial 2012; Generali Foundation, Vienna (2011); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010); The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (2008); and Documenta12, Kassel (2007).
This workshop is inspired by a new exhibition by internationally acclaimed artist Theaster Gates. Taking over the fifth floor of the AGO's Contemporary Tower, Gates presents How to Build a House Museum (LINK TO EXHIBITION PAGE), a wide-ranging and experimental interrogation of the house museum - its legacy as monument, as historical narrative, as racial achievement and as a site of freedom. Organized as a series of symbolic houses dedicated to George Black, W. E. B. Du Bois, Frankie Knuckles and Muddy Waters, among others, the exhibition uses music, dance, signage, video, artworks and archival documents - many related to the Black and queer experience - to explore how and what museums communicate.
