With 2013 comes new resolutions, new plans and new ideas for the year ahead. Why not check out the AGO’s exciting new education programs for 2013 which include classes for adults, youth and children. Classes start January 14th, but please call 416.979.6608 for more information on registration.

Here are some of the must-do courses that are available:

Introduction to Creative Photography (4 weeks: $200 Members/$265 non-Members) allows students to be creative with their digital cameras while learning about exposure, shooting in challenging lighting situations and creating strong compositions.

AGO also offers drop-in classes for adults, including Yoga in the AGO Galleries and Life Drawing in the AGO.

Life Drawing (ages 13 to18; 8 weeks: $250 Members/$300 non-Members) is the perfect opportunity for teens to develop their drawing skills by observing human figures and utilizing various mediums.

Cartooning (ages 8 to 13; 8 weeks: $315 Members/$375 non-Members) allows kids to use their imaginations and tell their stories with cartoons, using several different tools, including pencil, pen, markers and scratchboard. With the guidance of a professional cartoonist, children learn the art of drawing, storyboarding and character development.

Family Sundays are also a great way to spend time with the family doing something a little different, including Family Yoga for ages 3 and up.
