Marie-Ève Fontaine, artist in residence 

This winter, you and your students could make an exciting connection with an artist and participate in a rewarding creative process.

Over the course of a series of interactive workshops, the artist will share her universe, her insights and her view of the world. As she builds a bond of trust with the students, she will create with them, guiding them step by step to express themselves and give free rein to their inventiveness.


  • Explore the power of your imagination
  • Discover different forms of art and expression
  • Create alone and in a group
  • Getting to know each other, to collaborate

A series of six virtual workshops, offered on Zoom or Teams platform

Space is limited—book now! To register your class, contact Véronique Lavoie-Marcus, Coordinator of Youth Programs, NAC French Theatre.
