Themes

Theme 1: Face to Face

Inspired by the playful and colourful universe of artist Joannie Lafrenière, campers will have fun inventing characters and creating self-portraits. Every day, they’ll discover new figures through contemporary photos in the Hochelaga — Evolving Montreal exhibition and black and white photos from the Museum’s archives. An enriching exploration of self, others and portrait art.

Theme 2: All the Colours of Montreal

Inspired by the early paintings and digital works in the Becoming Montreal — The 1800s Painted by Duncan exhibition, campers will shape their concept of the city through a range of media. By immersing themselves in scenes from 19th-century Montréal, they’ll let their imagination run wild to envision the city’s development and the lives of the people who lived here. A week of artistic creativity and historical discoveries in all the colours of Montréal!
