Workshops for children

05.05 - 09.10.2016

Summer of 13 Sundays

Since 2010, the Ecole des filles offers a cultural mediation adapted to young visitors. Cultural mediators will accompany them for a playful and educative visit of the exhibition. These visits initiate the youngest to look, understand and interpret modern and contemporary art.

Workshops will be organised enabling in this way the children to venture to creation, guided by the works of the exhibited artists. Adapted to the age, these workshops let the children express their creativity by reappropriating the discoveries made during the visit.


From Wednesday to Saturday
4-8 years old : 10:30AM – 12PM
8-12 years old : 2PM – 3:30PM


On Wednesdays and Fridays

"The Aboriginal dream" for 4-8 years old / 10:30AM - 12PM

The Aboriginal artists : Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Dorothy Napangardi, Kathleen Petyarre

Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Dorothy Napangardi and Kathleen Petyarre are know on the Australian but also international artistic scene and their works are exhibited in numerous museums as the Quai Branly in Paris. These three artists from Australia share the same Aboriginal culture. They draw their inspiration from the numerous traditional histories, these sacred tales and these landscapes in order to pay tribute to their culture and their community. 
The "Dreamtime" is the central theme of the culture of Aborigines. It explains the origins of their world, of Australia and of its inhabitants. Through the observation of the works of these three artists, the children will question themselves on their culture, on the traditions that they know. They will then make a creation based on one of their dreams being inspired by the Aboriginal works.



On Wednesdays and Fridays

"Gluing the news" for 8-12 years old / 2PM - 3:30PM


Born in Los Angeles in 1924, friend of Joan Mitchell, she chooses the colourful lyricism, the fantasy of subjects to serve a multiple and tireless joy of life. With her collages, she asks herself on the great event of history as the French Revolution. 
After having observed Zuka's collages, each child will create a collage with extracts from newspapers. Thus, he will wonder on the news, on their representation in newspapers, and will do his own reading of it being inspired by the work of the artist.



On Thursdays and Saturdays

"Being a prehistoric man" for 4-8 years old / 10:30AM - 12PM

Loïc Le Groumellec

The new series of Loïc Le Groumellec, "Ecritures", draws his inspiration from the engraving of the “cairn de Gavrinis”, this megalithic monument erected around 4000 B.C., whose the walls of the funerary chamber are engraved by a kind of writing whose meaning was only know by Celts.

After having observed the work of Loïc Le Groumellec, the child will learn more about the discovery of fire and its vital importance for human beings. Every child will then put himself in a prehistoric man's place by being inspired by the “cairn de Gavrinis” to realise a creation.





On Thursdays and Saturdays

"Material - Light" for 8-12 years old / 2PM - 3:30PM

Bang Hai Ja

Bang Hai Ja uses in her works materials linked to her roots, the East and the West : Koreans papers, ochre soil from Provence, natural pigments. She tries to catch the energy coming from the act of painting. " I would like that through these pigments, the material becomes light, that it may provide an energy, an internal smile to the one who is watching".
Thinking about the influence of her origins in the work of Bang Hai Ja, the children will wonder on natural material coming from the environment surrounding us. After having collected materials in the forest of Huelgoat, every child will realise a creation drawing his inspiration from the work of the Korean artist.
