What if painting could enlighten our thoughts? Three sessions of family philosophy workshops offered by the association Les Petites Lumières, give children - and adults - the chance to cultivate broad ideas and see the world differently, based on a selection of works by artist Issy Wood

→ Sunday 29 October: Why do we become attached to objects?
Owning objects, becoming attached to them, transforming them, passing them on... children and their carers discuss this theme with the Petites Lumières, before creating a Chinese portrait.

→ Sunday 26 November: Who am I?
How do we perceive ourselves? How do we represent ourselves? What is a self-portrait? Children and their carers discuss this theme in the company of the Petites Lumières, before taking part in a writing game.

→ Sunday 17 December: Can an object be beautiful and ugly at the same time?
Mixing the beautiful and the ugly is quite an art! Why do we like it... or not...? We'll tell you all about our tastes in this workshop illuminated by Les Petites Lumières, using words and drawings.

* Reserve one ticket per participant. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
