Introduction to contemporary art

I conceive several trainings for professionals engaged in socio-educational activities for children. Those trainings (1, 2 or 3 days) aim to give the participants new tools to develop creative and original activities for their public, and guide them through the fields of photography and contemporary art.

How to approach contemporary art with various audiences ? This training is developed in several stages :

- Attempt to define what is contemporary art, with many examples and documentation

- How to explain a contemporary art work, and how to guide a group that is not familiar with museums in a contemporary art exhibition ? What are the educational tools that can be used to make it an enjoyable experience for all ?

- How to imagine art workshops connected to a contemporary art exhibition ?

- Viewing of some examples of achievements

- Practical realizations
