Livart’s art day camps introduce children aged 4 to 12 to various artistic mediums and trends. During this fun and interactive week, children discover the visual and cultural universe of recognized artists.

Each week, two programs are offered.

Groups of 4 to 9 year olds discover a different artist through creative workshops and cultural mediation activities. They will also be introduced to the artist’s culture by learning about their country, language and history. Daily outings to the park are also on the schedule.

Groups of 10 to 12 year olds explore the major arts. Children discover several artists and different visual arts practices. Hands-on art workshops, cultural mediations and on-site visits are on the agenda!

In addition to these activities, children enjoy the art center’s facilities by doing yoga in the great room, stretching in the courtyard and having fun with the water games on the roof terrace.


Why choose this camp?

Livart’s camps, designed for ages 4 to 12, allow children to develop their creativity, dexterity and curiosity. They also learn to discover themselves and build their confidence through their artistic achievements. They are designed to channel the children’s energy by balancing creative and physical activities. The outdoor outings and hands-on workshops allow the children to be accompanied and to develop healthy lifestyle habits. The yoga sessions, which are very popular with the children, offer them a moment of rest and concentration every afternoon. Each week, the children’s experience concludes with a vernissage where all their creations are showcased.

The activities vary from week to week and it is possible to register your child for several weeks.
