TEACHERS

Come and discover the temporary exhibitions and collections of the Modern Art Museum of Paris with your classes, specially adapted for your group.

ELEMENTARY AND PRIMARY SCHOOL CLASSES:

Multiple types of visits are offered to you.

 

The Dialogue Visit, where a cultural expert of the museum will accompany your class in the collections or a temporary exhibition and the visit will develop at the pace of the students around a dialogue and an exchange of ideas. All comments and questions are welcome!

The Animation Visit, based on the same concept as the dialogue visit, an expert will accompany you on the discovery of our collections or exhibitions, through a visual creation in the halls, in front of the works.

The Workshop Visit, where after having visited an exhibition or our permanent collections with a speaker from the museum, the students will go into one of our workshops to create (either in groups or individually), a visual art project whilst learning artist’s techniques. 

The Sensory Workshop Visit, an original experience where the students discover a temporary exhibition or our collections by awakening their senses and their feelings in front of the works, thanks to the approaches of Wutao and yoga. The visit can be completed by a small visual art project in the halls. A calm and sensitive way to discover a museum.

The Autonomous Visit, where you are the guide of your own class and decide to prepare in advance their discovery of our exhibitions or collections. Educational booklets created by our Cultural Service team will be available to you online.

To accompany you in the discovery of our programmes, you will find in the right column a series of downloadable pedagogical booklets, which propose key analytical points to facilitate the museum visit. 

You may also assist in our educator’s meetings, which present ways in which you can lead museum visits and discussions around certain themes or ideas.
