Young Visitors

The Collection de l’Art Brut has always extended a warm welcome to young people! Art Brut speaks out to youngsters, and the museum encourages such dialogue. Various activities exist for children to experience the Collection de l’Art Brut in their own way.


Several workshops bring youngsters closer to an artist’s act of creating or to a particular set of themes, thanks to their gift for observation and personal interpretation. The concept of Art Brut is addressed from the point of view of childhood experience, and every temporary exhibition renews the subject broached. The budding creators leave the museum with their creation in hand and a tasty snack in their stomach


« Du coq ...........à l'âne » pour les 6 à 10 ans (durée 1h30/ prix: 10.- par enfant)

De la besace qui t’accompagne lors de tes voyages imaginaires, sors un animal auquel tu donneras formes et couleurs à la manière d’André Robillard.
Carton, feutre, scotch, plumes et autres matériaux de récupération te permettront de réaliser ce trophée. Celui-ci posera fièrement sur un socle que tu auras pris soin de décorer.
Le voilà !... fidèle compagnon de tes aventures sur la terre, les mers et même dans l’espace !
Ces ateliers sont organisés dans le cadre de l’exposition André Robillard - du 28 novembre 2014 au 19 avril 2015

Activities album

Every youngster on an unofficial visit receives an activities album. This small leaflet provides children aged 6 to 12 with games serving as guidelines to each temporary exhibition. The colored pencils needed to fill in the riddles and do the drawings are provided with each album.

Guided tours

Guided tours (ca. 30 min.) for small groups appeal to the children’s curiosity. A dynamic and lively approach is taken to  the Art Brut world featured in both the main collection and the temporary exhibitions.
