L’École à l’œuvre : Projet vidéoclip

Artist residency with Marie-Ève Fontaine
Francophone Music Theatre Youth Workshops Visual Arts


Ages 9-14

This program is offered in French only.

Welcome (virtually) an artist in residence in your classroom!

This year, offer your students a truly unique artistic experience! With her multidisciplinary talents, artist Marie-Ève Fontaine work with your class to create an amazing music video from A to Z for a song by a Canadian singer-songwriter. You’ll get to meet the singer-songwriter, analyze song lyrics, develop a storyboard, create your own characters, dream up landscapes, and finally animate and film it all to produce a music video which will then be released! We'll supply the materials, so all you have to do is put your creative spirit to work. 

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:

  • develop imagination and creative thinking;  
  • create collaboratively;  
  • learn more about poetry, songwriting, developing a storyboard, video production and animation 
  • discover a multidisciplinary approach to art;  
  • support the work of an emerging Canadian singer-songwriter.
