What you'll do

After a projection of images about the artwork of Gauguin, you will practice immediatly the special technique of "dessin-empreinte" - a kind of monotype executed with typographic ink - , invented by the artist at Tahiti. Walking on the steps of Gauguin, you will realize a lots of beautiful and poetic "dessins-empreintes", inspired by the painting of the master of post-impressionism and by your own imagination, that you will bring home. This workshop is an ideal family activity that does not require any knowledge in drawing. It is fun and very attractive. It will allow you to better understand the work of the famous French artist, friend of Van Gogh. You can continue your experience by going to see his paintings at Orsay Museum which is close to the studio.
