School Workshops

School Workshops

Our workshops introduce young people to authentic traditions from different peoples and communities through artistic activities.

These can be done:

  • ​In class
  • During extracurricular activities or daycare
  • During pedagogical days.


In order to promote the period of social and cognitive development of the child, our workshops are aimed at children going to preschool, elementary and secondary school.

We are committed to developing, in collaboration with teachers, the critical spirit of the citizens of tomorrow.

  • Typically planned for 25 participants
  • All materials are included
  • Given in either French, English or Spanish, as needed
  • The workshop can take place in the classroom
  • Duration from 1 to 2 hours, the content can adapt to your schedule
  • The workshops can be given continuously according to your needs
If your school is English speaking, you can apply for the ELAN Inspire Artist Grant.

The workshops are available year round. If you are an English-speaking school, you can benefit from the “inspired artist” scholarship https://artistsinspire.ca/ which will pay for PAAL workshops

    COVID-19 Measures ⚠️

    Our organization has created an envelope system containing materials and instructions for each child. The virtual activity is accompanied by how-to videos or a link to follow the activity live, allowing the activity to be done with a computer or tablet.

    Our on-site workshops follow specific guidelines for the education community (COVID-19), such as wearing personal protective equipment at all times, and disinfecting materials and work surfaces.

    The PAAL Program

    The PAAL program complements the Quebec teaching model since it is part of the Integration and Intercultural Education Policy, enacted in 1998 by the Quebec government. PAAL’s workshops contribute to the education of democratic citizenship, as offered by this policy, by enabling students to enrich their intercultural communication skills. Our activities are also in line with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education’s support program for the reception and integration of immigrant students. The goal is to help young immigrants integrate into the Quebec society.
