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

Soirée soif d’expression

Thursday from 5:00 to 7:30 pm
Let your creativity flow!

For the sixth year running, the Soirée Soif d’expression is back at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke! This event is the perfect opportunity to get up close to an exceptional work of art from the reserves, while using your creativity to create your own masterpiece. The selected works are large formats from the prestigious collection of the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke.

The Soirée Soif d’expression is designed for adults of all levels. No experience of acrylic painting is necessary. All art materials are provided, and participants leave with their painted work. Aperitifs include wine and fine cheeses from Fromagerie de la Gare. These evenings are ideal for relaxing, chatting and socializing while admiring an exceptional MBAS work. The evenings will feature a variety of musical styles, from electro-jazz and classical to franco-pop and lo-fi.

A total of eight (8) events will be held this year, from October 2023 to June 2024.

As soon as the doors open at 5:00 pm, the mediation team will be on hand to welcome you. The first to arrive will choose the best seats in the room.

The presentation of the work takes place at 5:30pm. A mediator will reveal exclusive information about the work and launch the creative challenge that will inspire the artistic expression session. Then it’s time to get creative! Originality is encouraged – the aim is not to emulate or reproduce the work presented. The evening ends at 7.30pm.
