There are between 8 and 12 children per group. We normally have 6 groups including: 1 group of 4-5 years, 1 group of 5 to 6 years, 1 group of 6 years, 1 group of 7 years, 1 group of 7-8 years and 1 group of 8-9 years. You can request that certain children be in the same group.
Please note that if you want to put two children together with a gap of more than 2 years, the two children must be in the group of the youngest.
For example, it is not possible to put a 4 year old child in a 6 year old group. The 6 year old will have to join the 4 year old group.
In the morning, children are invited to participate in a cultural mediation workshop where they will discover the culture and artistic practice of the artist of the week. They will then carry out 3 creative workshops during the day. Outings to the park, physical activities and yoga workshops allow children to move enough during the day.
We introduce children to drawing (charcoal, pastel, lead), painting (gouache, watercolor and acrylic), sculpture (clay, installation and construction paper) and collage (cardboard paper, tissue paper and mixed media).
Introduce children to various artistic mediums while giving free rein to their imaginations. Establish links and exchanges between cultural mediation workshops and creative workshops in order to foster an immersive and fun learning environment. Encourage and support children in order to value them in their personal achievements.

Livart’s primary mission is the dissemination and democratization of the arts. It is with the vision of broadening the usual audience of art exhibitions that the gallery hosts events of all kinds. The Livart gallery is unique in terms of the number of exhibitions and the type of work on display, but also in the diversity of visitors who set foot in. That said, the center expects a great deal of respect for the works on display from you. These cannot be moved, removed or covered. You will be held responsible for any damages if this is the case. However, you can rent our large room, which is free of art at all times.
