Family Kit: T.M. Glass: The Audible Language of Flowers

 

Tuesday, July 9, 2019 - 11:00am

Onsite Gallery, OCAD University is happy to offer a free interactive guide for families and young visitors to creatively engage with our current contemporary art exhibition, T.M. Glass: The Audible Language of Flowers.

What is the family kit?

The family kit is a self-guided tour designed for families or younger visitors. It contains questions and activities to help younger audiences engage with the artwork within the exhibition.

The family kit has:

  1. A printed guide that includes questions and activities organized by artwork. It consists of three parts:
     
    1. Something to think about…
      This section has questions that encourages viewers to have a closer look at the artwork in order to help them engage with the main ideas proposed by the artwork. Great for any age 3 years+.
       
    2. Activity (each has its own name)
      These are didactic activities thought to stimulate the use of diverse senses as well as the imagination of the young visitors and their companions.
       
    3. Let’s continue the discussion!
      Questions with a higher level of complexity. They are meant for a teen audience and those that are critical-thinking oriented.
       
  2. Activity cards that have the same information in the guide, but are easy to handle and carry along in the gallery.
     
  3. Family kit (the box) with diverse materials that are provided for the activities.

 

Intended audiences

  • Children from 3 years +, but toddlers may also join the fun
  • Teenagers
  • Their companions and/or caregivers


How to access the family kit
Simply visit Onsite Gallery (199 Richmond St. West) and ask for the family kit at the front desk.

 

The family kit was created and designed by Karina Roman Justo.

T.M. Glass: The Audible Language of Flowers presents recent series of images by lens-based artist T.M. Glass that feature blooms and vessels from unique gardens across the globe. Glass' distinct photographic style is characterized by extensive digital embellishment of textures and colours to enhance the emotion and geometry of flowers. Recently, the artist’s large-scale flower images expanded into the third dimension through advanced 3-D printing technology. Inspired by 17th century European flower paintings, the artist contends that contemporary digital photographers are also painters who work with pixels instead of oils. The exhibition brochure is available online here.
