The creative workshops “La Fabrique de Souvenirs” are intended for children, 6 to 14 years old (depending on the theme), and take place over a period of 2 to 5 days. The goal is to reveal their creativity. Through observation of the environment, analysis of existing works, understanding of key markers and confidence building, each child will find invaluable resources that will open the doors to their creativity.
Workshops are held with music, in a warm and serene atmosphere. Generally, they start at 9:00 am and end at 4:30 pm, with breaks, especially outside (the workshop is located in a safe residential area without cars).
On request, arrangements can be made for the age of the participants, the time of the day or the drop-off and pick-up of the children at the Stettbach train station or at the LFZ (depending on the constraints, these arrangements can be refused or charged).
The workshops are built around the following axes:
- identifying what defines the object studied (musical instrument, subject to be painted, characteristics of a work, particularity of a painter etc…)
- making sketches or drawings of one’s ideas and learning to appreciate the work done (welcoming one’s creativity, developing benevolence and positive thinking)
- interacting to feed one’s creativity with others’
- realizing the object which constitutes the key of the workshop over the whole duration: construction of an instrument, composition of a song, painting of a personal work, drawing on varied and unusual supports
Listening, understanding and positivism are the key value of “La Fabrique de Souvenirs” in NiQo’s Studio
Registration costs from 100 to 130 CHF per day of workshop (depending on the material needed), material, meals and snacks included. Registrations are open to a maximum of 8 places per workshop in order to guarantee a qualitative supervision throughout the workshop.
