Enfants qui font une visite et un atelier de création au Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke



Let your creativity flow!

Beginning with an educational component, the activity begins with a commented observation of a representation of a work from the collection in the educational workshop with a mediator. The group is then invited to explore a technique related to the fine arts or the artistic process in relation to the work presented.

This series of workshops is an opportunity to learn about different mediums such as oil pastel, poured ink, tissue paper, while having fun with original creative challenges, such as making a handmade booklet or a phenakistiscope! At the end, participants keep their creations and can continue their visit to the Museum’s exhibitions.

A small snack and a beverage are offered to participants during the activity. Art materials provided, coloured aprons on loan.

Fee: Activity included in the price of admission / free for members
Public: Intended for the family public, a target age is suggested but the workshop is open to all! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Duration: 60 minutes (plan to arrive 5 minutes before the beginning of the workshop)
