AMSFA’s Calendar

Inscriptions en cours

Each year, A Montréal School for All produces an illustrated calendar of artistic and cultural works. The 2020-2021 calendar was designed in collaboration with artist-illustrator Alain Reno, inspired by the experiential approach to art and culture of A Montréal School for All.

Using the illustrations created by the artist, this year’s calendar is now interactive! To enrich student’s world view and to inspire interpretation, a monthly challenge related to each work of art will be provided.

These challenges also serve as a way to get to know an artist and to give students the opportunity to unleash their creativity, their imagination and their ability to problem solve.

Encourage your students to participate individually or collectively.
