    Visières décoratives

    When students returned to class in May 2020, some were unsure of the identity of their teacher, who now had to wear a visor. The decorated visor project was launched to reassure the students that their teacher was the same person they had known prior to the lockdown.

    It was the students who came up with the idea of decorating the visors to make coming back to school during the pandemic a more positive experience. As a bonus, the decorated visors would put a smile on the faces of those who had to look at them all day. The students created personalized decorations to match each teacher's tastes. Thus, the students were faced with a real need that they met with a practical solution.
