2nd & 3rd place: A French Library tote bag filled with wonderful books in French!
And, it’s easy to participate! Your amateur young artist needs crayons or colored pencils, a little imagination, and some help from you!
Directions for kids/teens: Before we reveal our final renovations to the public, imagine what one of the following spaces will look like.
La salle de classe (classroom), la réception (welcome desk), la cuisine (kitchen), la galerie (gallery), la bibliothèque (library)
Each drawing must include at least three (3) easily recognizable Francophone elements. Please bear in mind that Francophone culture is more than just Paris and France in general. The drawing of the room could include : the French flag (of course!); the flags of other Francophone countries, provinces or territories; a plate of food from a French-speaking country; a picture frame on the wall representing a famous Francophone monument; etc. The diversity of Francophone elements will be taken into consideration by the judges.
- For inspiration, you may choose to show them a picture of what the space looked like prior to renovations! Please note that your child/teen does not need to have visited the Center in order to participate.
- Encourage your young artist to include Francophone culture is more than just Paris and France in general.
- Teachers/Parents: This challenge is a wonderful opportunity to review some of the useful words linked to a house/office setting and discuss the concepts of “aesthetics/architecture/design/space” through the lens of Francophone culture.
