École Sainte-Hélène in Saint-Henri-de-Taillon, initiated by Langage Plus art centre, 2019

Thanks to support from the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications aimed at backing cultural offerings in the educational pathway, Langage Plus art centre, in collaboration with Centre SAGAMIE (Alma), launched a pan-Canadian call for submissions in 2019, for which Forêt-école was selected to carry out a two-month, full-time project with students at École Sainte-Hélène (ages 5-12) in Saint-Henri-de-Taillon, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Quebec. The project was to include educational creative workshops and the creation of a permanent artwork reflecting the artistic experience with the students, which would belong to École Sainte-Hélène.
