Join us for a brand new workshop all about la bande dessinée–French comic books! From Astérix and Obélix to Tintin, these characters and their stories have remained a beloved part of French culture for generations. In this workshop, Coucou teacher Mahaut will guide participants through a hands-on experience and discovery of the “neuvième art,” with the chance to craft their very own page or strip. Immerse yourself in the visual and narrative richness of la bande dessinée, or la “BD,with this fresh approach to language learning. During this linguistic and artistic adventure, students will practice their French, develop an appreciation for the cultural significance of comic books, and embrace the spirit of French creativity!
