Guided tour and workshop for children / July 2018 (French only)

Tuesday, 10, Wednesday, 11, Thursday, 12 and Friday, 13 July, 2018 | at 2:30pm

After a short guided tour of the exhibition Japonisms / Impressionisms, children participate in a workshop within the exhibition rooms and explore the themes and techniques featured in the exhibition. A fun way to learn through hands-on and creative activities.

My water-lily fan
(Tuesday, 10 July and Thursday, 12 July, at 2:30pm)

After going through the exhibition looking for fans in the paintings and for paintings in the shape of a fan, children imagine their own composition in the half-circle shape that inspired Degas, Gauguin, Signac and many more. The workshop uses collage, drawing with pencils, gold and silver pastels, and a dash of origami.
