Workshop for Children
“Welcome to the art circus!”
Thursday, April 20, 2 – 4 pm
Welcome to the circus! The painter Camille Bombois worked in a circus for a long time before he became an artist. But even later, he liked to remember this time and painted many clowns and other friends he had met in the circus ring. On 20th April, after a short guided tour of our museum, we will take Bombois experiences as an example to create beautiful, colorful masks! The guided tour and workshop cost € 5, the recommended minimum age is 5 years. Please bring protective clothing!
