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!

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 (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.
