Description

How about recreating a Louvre museum highlight, and maybe add your personal touch?

Meet your private, experienced art teacher at the private workshop and follow his simple instructions to recreate your own Louvre Museum highlight.

For this, you will be using a special technique called linocut printing. First, you will engrave what you want to reproduce in a special lino material. Once you are satisfied with your creation, your art teacher will take it to the press in order to reproduce it on a piece of paper, following the old techniques used by so many artists in the past.

At the end of the workshop, you and your family will be able to bring back your own (or a common family) black and white or colored version of your chosen Louvre highlight while having learned a new artistic technique.

This workshop is a perfect hands-on follow-up activity to a visit of the Louvre Museum. Book our Treasure Hunt at the Louvre activity to make sure you and your children get the best experience!

FAQ's

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.
Do the parents participate?
Of course! Everyone will be creating their own work of art. That is the fun part!
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
Yes, even the youngest children are welcome. They might not know exactly who Van Gogh was, but they will surely have fun mixing the paint on the canvas.
Can I choose any painting I want to reproduce?
Theoretically, we designed this hands-on workshop to be an extension of our Treasure Hunt at the Louvre. So the idea is to reproduce one of the highlights that you have seen during the tour. But since art knows no boundaries, you are free to reproduce any art work you like, or even design your own!
Do I need to bring special material?
No! You do not need to bring anything as all the material is prepared for you.
Are we leaving the workshop with anything?
Of course, you will leave the workshop with your creations. We will make sure that these do not become too bulky, so you can easily put them in your suitcase when coming back home.
Will my teenage kids like the activity?
If they like arts & crafts, they will love this hands-on activity. However, if they do not care much for art, then we recommend looking at some of our other activities.
