Artistic Summer Day Camp with Christine ComeauJuly 24, 2017 - July 28, 2017
SUMMER ART DAY CAMP
During this workshop led by Christine Comeau, the children explored the textile material through the sewing and layout of various heteroclite materials. They created costumes related to the themes of nomadism, mobility, quest and the physical and mental boundaries created by displacement. The designs of clothes or nomadic sculptures have then become places of exchange and discussion.
Throughout the week, Accacia, Koralie, Nicolas and Erwan exercised their talents and set free their imagination to design colourful costumes, totemic creatures and nomadic shelters. The abundant program of activities —perfect for channelling the boundless energy of the participants— was comprised of walks, open-air drawing sessions, textile workshops, micro sculptures and mask design.
