    Les bandes dessinées sont reconnues pour leur capacité à capter l’intérêt des lecteurs les plus réticents, ce qui les rendent bien appréciées par les enfants du monde entier. Jo Rioux utilise ses propres bandes dessinées pour initier les participants à ce médium unique. À partir d’un exercice d’imagination qui sert de point de départ à leur histoire, les participants se concentrent ensuite à marier mots et images pour transformer leurs idées en création originale.

    Les participants de niveau plus avancé sont initiés à des techniques de BD plus approfondies. Pour l’atelier d’une heure, Jo propose une démonstration interactive de dessin et un court exercice pratique visant à initier les participants au processus créatif d’écriture.

    À propos de l'artiste

    Jo Rioux est née et a grandi à Ottawa. Lorsqu’elle était enfant, elle dévorait les bandes dessinées ; d’abord dans sa langue maternelle en français et plus tard en Anglais. Son parcours artistique s’est développé à l’école secondaire spécialisée dans les arts qui l’a ensuite menée au programme d’illustration du Sheridan College. Après avoir obtenu son diplôme, elle a été attirée par les livres pour enfants, illustrant Swordquest pour HarperCollins et la série de romans graphiques A Sam and Friends Mystery pour Kids Can Press. Son amour pour le milieu de la bande dessinée l’a incitée à écrire sa première série de romans graphiques; Cat’s Cradle qui sera bientôt republié par First Second Books.
