In collaboration with Alan Johnston, the Villa Vauban is announcing a series of educational workshops designed to pass on the works in the exhibition Bienvenue à la Villa! (2).

Alan Johnston is an internationally renowned illustrator and naturalist with a doctorate in visual arts. As an educator, he is committed to art and the environment and teaches all age groups. Since 2016, he has been a lecturer at the University of Luxembourg and a trainer at the IFEN.

EACH STUDENT WILL RECEIVE A FREE SKETCHBOOK.

THE WORKSHOPS CAN BE BOOKED INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER:

PLANT FORMS

Using a question-and-answer game, Alan Johnston looks at a number of plant 'portraits' with the children: from Chantal Maquet's brightly coloured silhouettes to Jim Peiffer's POP ART-style flowers in a vase. Why are they so colourful and isolated? After this theoretical part, the pupils will try to sketch flowers in a vase by looking for their shapes with a colouring, well coloured in watercolour or in "Neocolour". CHALLENGE! Weather permitting, you can paint plant shades in the grounds of Villa Vauban.

PUBLIC: From the 2nd cycle of primary education onwards
DURATION: 2:00

FULL FIGURE PORTRAIT

After a short session observing the coloured portraits of Nina Mambourg and Roland Schauls, under the guidance of Alan Johnston, the pupils will alternate between the role of model and artist, drawing inspiration in black pencil and colouring in watercolours or "Neocolour".
