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!

Sign up for the next workshops

Fun Huts -  For ages 6 to 10 (duration 1h45/ fee: SF 10.- a youngster)

Project: the creation of a hut out of wood, wire and and wool yarn
Come explore the architectural worlds of the Collection de l'Art Brut: wire houses, paper cities and more still!
After a tour of the current exhibition—where you will discover, among others, the lace houses by Marie-Rose Lortet—it will be your turn to turn into an architect! You'll have plenty of wire and wool yarn to help you come up with your own fun hut.  Feel free to use your imagination from bottom up, inventing a skyscraper, teepee or castle, or even your very own dream house!
