During the “semaine de la langue française”, Thierry Mery, a comic book artist, delivered a workshop in ISL. Grade 5, 6, 9 and 10 students were taught how to use simple geometric shapes to draw comic-style characters, faces and facial expressions.
The main idea was for students to come out of this workshop with a few useful tips and put them into practice straight away during this special week celebrating the French language.
This year’s theme for the “semaine de la francophonie” was “time”. Grade 9 and 10 drew a comic linked to that theme.
Grade 5 and 6 illustrated one episode of the book they are reading, “La gloire de mon père”.
It was a very fruitful day!
