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.
Workshops bring youngsters closer to the act of creating or to a particular set of themes, thanks to their gift for observation and personal interpretation. Each youngster leaves the museum with his creation in hand and a tasty snack in his stomach!

À l’occasion de l’exposition People, viens découvrir comment des auteurs d’Art Brut, tels qu’Yves-Jules Fleuri ou Curzio Di Giovanni, se sont inspirés d’images de magazines pour représenter les stars d’hier et d’aujourd’hui.
Après une visite dans le star-système, ce sera à toi de jouer les paparazzi !
 ... Avec des ciseaux, de la colle et des journaux illustrés, réalise le portrait de ta star préférée!
