2021 Winter Classes

This class is an opportunity for students to live their first aesthetic experiences, that is to say, their experience of the aura of art. To achieve this, a particular emphasis will be put on the development of the imaginary through several creations that will be anchored in themes that we will explore at the beginning of each course: endangered animals in Quebec, travel, abstract expressionism, bioart, the colours of autumn, the magic of winter …

Through several 20 minute long activities, these moments of creation will be the opportunity for the children to cut, stick, colour, staple, assemble, model, create… in order to develop their sensitivity to materials, shapes and structures. This course will also awaken them to certain cultural references accessible to their age.
