Art workshops

Auguste Rodin is one of the most talented and famous sculptors of all time as his technique and approach to sculpting were revolutionary.
Meet your private, experienced art teacher and let them take your family into Rodin’s world of sculpture. Your first stop is the magnificent Rodin Museum where your teacher will lead you to the highlights such as The Doors of Hell and The Thinker. Keep your eyes and ears open as this is the best inspiration for the upcoming hands-on sculpting workshop.
After this 45-minute visit, hop into our private luxurious minivan and let our chauffeur drive you to your private workshop.
Once arrived, it is time to become the modern-day Rodin: after a brief introduction on the various techniques used to sculpt a 3D object, you will start sculpting and carving the clay. You can either reproduce one of Rodin’s masterpieces or create your own from scratch.
At the end, your individual creations will be wrapped up while still humid and you will be able to let them dry up once you are back home after making final adjustments if necessary.

Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones in the art workshop, along with your private art teacher. He/she will also privately guide your family through the Rodin Museum.

How long does the workshop last?

The workshop lasts a maximum of 2 hours. In this amount of time, it is possible to make a small, 3D sculpture.

How do we get from the museum to the workshop?

The transfer is included. It’s a Mercedes V-Class minivan with private chauffeur. Everyone, including your teacher, will hop into the van to get to the workshop.

Will the parents participate in the workshop?

Of course! Everyone will be creating their own sculpture. That is the fun part!

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

Sculpting is a bit difficult for younger children, so we highly recommend booking this activity for children that are at least 6 years old.

Can we do the workshop without going to the museum?

Of course, we can arrange this. Just contact us and tell us what you have in mind. But going to the museum will help everyone get a true idea of what sculpting is all about, and you will see some of the most extraordinary and famous works by Rodin. Our art teacher knows how to make it interesting for the children.

Do I need to bring special material?

No! You don’t need to bring anything as all the material is prepared for you.

Are we leaving the workshop with anything?

Since the sculptures require 24 hours to dry, we will deliver them to your hotel, or we can arrange a shipment to your home in your country (with extra fees).

Will my teenage kids like the activity?

If they like arts & crafts, they will love this hands-on activity.
