In the past year, Marie-Hélène Comeau offers a series of drawing and animation workshop using an old technique; the praxinoscope the ancestor in a way of stop motion.
This series of art workshop has been a success in different Whitehorse schools engaging students of all ages in an original and fun way to create animated drawings.
Marie will demonstrate the technique and help visitors to create their own animation. Come by and work on an animation throughout the week!
Originally from Quebec, Marie-Hélène moved to the Yukon in 1992. Since then she has been engaging in a creative exploration of her experience of the North in her paintings. In 2013 she started to run the Yukon chapter of the international art project Caravane des dix mots which allowed her to give art workshops in Whitehorse and other countries. She completed a BA in Fine Art in 2011 at Université du Québec à Montréal and is currently completing a PhD in fine art at UQAM. Over the years, Marie-Hélène has had many solo and collaborative shows in the Yukon, North West Territory and in Montreal.
