Four artists led the workshop for 3 groups of children. One of the groups worked on portraits, while another did some hand painting inspired by Lascaux cave paintings. The third group tried geometrical shapes, inspired by Matisse’s collages.

The children had a lot of fun and showed exceptional creation skills. Each piece is different, just as their artists.
The aim of La Taverne Gutenberg’s program is to create artistic international exchanges and share their passion for art with the poorest of the poor, by giving art workshops to their partner NGOs specializing in helping street children and youth at risk.
