“Four Seasons” (1895) by Alfons Mucha

During this week of creative fun, kids will enjoy themselves while discovering the iconic artistic movement of the Belle Epoque in Paris; a movement that inspired Jugendstil in Central Europe.

Art Nouveau, a largely decorative approach to the arts, is characterised by its curves line. It sought its inspiration in nature’s flora to create elaborated and beautiful patterns.

In Paris, Art Nouveau is still visible today in public architecture, notably in the metro stations designed by the architect Hector Guimard.

Children will experiment with a variety of artistic
techniques, such as painting, drawing, printmaking, mosaic and stained glass (with paper).

They will seek inspiration in the works of painters and illustrators, such as  Gustav Klimt, Aubrey Beardsley, Alfons Mucha, Jules Chéret, or the stained glass designer, the American Artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, or in the mosaics of the amazing Catalonian architect Antoni Gaudi.
