MOSAIC, with Frédéric Ellis

Mosaic consists of a series of workshops during which participants are invited to reflect on their personal life experiences through drawing, painting, and arts and crafts exercises. Participants are encouraged to share their dreams and important memories as inspiration for their artworks. The program concludes with an exhibition of the works produced during the workshops. Originally adapted for neurodivergent clients with autism spectrum disorder and individuals with mild intellectual disabilities, Mosaic is an inclusive workshop meant to underling the individuality of each participant through shared stories and learning experiences.

Activities will include: the creation of origami cranes highlighting participants’ individuality; drawing of dreams they would like to fulfil; drawing a person who has helped them in their lives; the creation of a large canvas, to release the imagination and develop each participant’s own artistic signature.
