Imaginary Correspondences – From March 14 to May 19, 2024

Our artist-in-residence Fiona Annis is inspired by Guido Molinari’s correspondence: letters he received from friends, family and fellow artists.

Letters are a way of recounting adventures that have happened to us, or memories we want to keep. They can even contain drawings and a few surprises…

As part of our Correspondences exhibition, this workshop will enable children to explore correspondence, whether written or drawn, from preparation to dispatch! Together, we’ll create a letter that he or she can send home to rediscover the stories behind it.

Bubble painting – Spring Break 2023

After visiting the Tons, teintes, nuances exhibition, participants are invited to create works of art using a very special technique: bubble paint! Using a dilution of paint and straws, follow in the footsteps of the artists in the exhibition and explore color by superimposing several of them. Observe the abstract result: what shapes do you see in what you’ve created? Have you created new colors by mixing them?
