L’Imagier’s Day Camp

Despite the recent easing of sanitary preventive measures, we have decided to act in solidarity with the efforts of Public Health and its workers. The day camp is unfortunately cancelled for the summer of 2021. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this exceptional situation.


Art in Action!

Based on the alternative pedagogy model, kids work in an open space using available material and animator-artists guide and facilitate kids’ projects. Every morning, kids learn about a new technique, and then proceed to create. After lunch, the technique is put into practice as part of a project in contemporary art. Throughout the day, kids alternate between outdoor play and artistic creation. Self-respect and respect for the others, helping each other out and openness to the world around us  is strongly emphasized. At L’Imagier, curiosity is encouraged, friendship bonds are created and colourful discoverie are made. On Fridays, parents and friends are invited to visit to see the artwork created during the week.
