L’École à l’œuvre : Projet vidéoclip

Artist residency in your school
Francophone Music Theatre Youth Workshops Visual Arts

In school

Ages 9-14

This program is offered in French only.

Welcome an artist in residence in your classroom!

Accompanied by a professionnal artist, your students will experience a creative project unlike any other! During this workshop series (5 sessions per class), they will learn to make art from drawings, paper marionnettes, and shadow theatre techniques. They'll put their hands to work to create a music video for a song by a Canadian francophone artist.

L’école à l’œuvre program invites you to work with an artist in a series of multidisciplinary workshops. You’ll be encouraged to let your imagination run free and unleash its full potential, which reaches far beyond dreams and fantasy. It’s a great opportunity to shake up the daily routine and take a fresh look at the world around you. 

Artistic and pedagogical objectives of the project:

  • Discovering the work of an emerging franco-canadian singer-songwriter;
  • Honing skills in active listening, imagination, and creative thinking;
  • Creating in a collaborative manner;
  • Learn more about poetry, songwriting, developing a storyboard, video production and animation;
  • Develop fine motor skills through drawing, crafting, and handling puppets;
  • Discover a multidisciplinary approach to art;  
  • Have a blast in French!
