Educational publications

Made for teachers and guides, this guide shows a series of ideas, exercises and games to enable a coherent and original discovery of Art nouveau. Interactive visits are proposed to discover Art Nouveau at the level of individual objects, collections, museums, a building or a neighbourhood. Stimulating the sense was a prime objective; the proposed exercises were created to require only minimal preparation or materials. Thus they are accessible to every teacher or guide who wants to work interactively! Educators and guides can use the ideas that are generated by this tool for example during other heritage or arts projects that involve young people.
