From Villa Paloma to Grimaldi Forum, the Principality’s cultural institutions have designed artistic workshops to entertain young audiences. And there are still some places. School holidays are here, but it is still time to get entertained in a fun way by getting rich in the artistic field. This is the promise of the youth workshops, offered throughout July at both the Grimaldi Forum and the New National Museum of Monaco.
At the Grimaldi Forum, the youth workshops around the exhibition dedicated to Salvador Dali will inevitably be tinged with surrealism! Three one-week sessions are scheduled until July 26th.
Each educational workshop includes a fun tour of the exhibition and an introduction to the visual arts to develop creativity in children by using different techniques and studying a number of works in the exhibition.
On Mondays, children will be inspired by “The head in the clouds”, working on a silhouette on a black background where a cloudy sky appears. On Wednesday, the black markers will be out to draw moustaches on self-portraits. The session also includes an approach to Surrealist and Cubist techniques.
At the New National Museum, the Museum Art Summer Club (MASC) also resumes service for three weeks of daily or weekly workshops.
The first, which ended last week, was in connection with the exhibition of Ettore Spalletti Azure Ombre, transparency at Villa Paloma. Throughout the week, children aged 7 to 12 have experimented alone or with others in a different technique: wood painting, gold leaf, volume and colour. Also at Villa Paloma, from July 23rd to 26th, from 2pm to 5pm, workshops will be offered for 10-12-year-olds around the installation of Michel Blazy’s shoe collection, where the artist uses sneakers for growing plants.
THE ART OF PORTRAITURE
Finally, this week, the “Portrait for Feature” workshop, this time at the Villa Sauber, proposes, around the Step by Step exhibition which presents many portraits dating from the Renaissance to the present day, to come back to this technique. Its history and its multiple forms, from the portrait to the blind to the photographic portrait (the 15, 16 and 17 of July for the 7-9 years and the 18 and 19 of July for the 10-12 years of 14h to 17h).
Rates: 15 euros a day, 70 euros a week.
