Julien Tardieu
Octobre à décembre 2017

The con­tem­po­rary art center invited Julien Tardieu to do a res­i­dency with three pri­mary schools in Embrun from October to December 2017.

The classes con­cerned: CP and CP-CE1 stu­dents from the Pasteur school and CP from the Cézanne school. With them, he tackles sub­jects specific to his artistic reflec­tions: color, pat­tern, geo­metric shapes, through sev­eral mediums: drawing, painting, and the con­struc­tion of paper vol­umes.

After dis­cov­ering the artist’s work, chil­dren are invited to follow and par­tic­i­pate in the design and pro­duc­tion of an exhi­bi­tion in the shops and public space of down­town Embrun.

Children not only assist in the imple­men­ta­tion of a pro­ject but par­tic­i­pate fully from its con­cep­tion.
