Our program features a selection of engaging, art-based activities in French as a basis for learning the spoken language and exploring the francophone culture. Classes are conducted by French-speaking art students or artists in collaboration with the instructor. Children will develop their dexterity, creativity, patience, and sense of aesthetics throughout the program as well as their verbal French skills through a natural exposure to the language.
In this class children learn about the different types of paints, brushes and mediums as well as popular techniques, including under painting, texture building, creating effects using appropriate brushes or other shaping tools like the palette knife, sgraffito, and glazing. Though the primary focus is on painting, the course also includes an introduction to sketching and drawing, as well as calligraphy.
In this workshop your child will experiment the art of salt-dough making, its various techniques and tools to eventually create beautifully crafted objects, including ornaments, figurines etc. Themed projects are offered throughout the school year. Contact us for additional information.
Sessions are conducted in French for French Immersion students & francophone children from SK to Grade 3. Students are encouraged to interact in French only and the instructor keeps track of the vocabulary and grammar used in class.
Bilingual sessions are also available for students in the English stream. Our instructor will gradually increase the exposure to French as children get more comfortable with the spoken language over the course of the program. At this level, language material used includes theme-specific vocabulary, basic instructions and encouragements.
