About the Session

Since spring 2020, Surrey Art Gallery has partnered with Surrey’s Seniors’ Come Share Society to offer We’re All Artists: Creative Practices at Home as part of Seniors Centre Without Walls. Experienced Gallery art educators lead verbal art lessons entirely over the phone to seniors age 55+ based in Surrey.

Tune into this presentation and workshop to learn more about the program and, using materials found at home, follow along with Claire as she leads an art lesson through verbal cues alone.
