Jacques Clément has a Bachelor of Arts from UQAM. Since 1982, he has taken part in numerous exhibitions at artist-run centres, cultural centres and university galleries in Québec and Ontario. The artist has given several conferences and demonstrations of various drawing and painting techniques. A professor at the Saidye Bronfman Centre in Montréal, he helps students discover their own means of expressing themselves and improving their vision of art.
Divided into two parts, the workshop aims to encourage students to experiment with their creativity. During the first part, which is devoted to individual expression, each student paints a piece of cardboard measuring 16 x 20 inches with gouache. These works will then be cut into four equal parts. The individual pieces will be shuffled and then redistributed to all of the participants. Students will then have the task of putting them together like a puzzle. The second part is geared to the group dynamic. The young people will have to decide as a group how they wish to put together and structure the elements to build the mural. By discussing their experience and the visual impact obtained, they learn to understand the creative process while opening up new horizons.
