Artistic creation From 8 years

Atelier Calligraphie

An artist understood

Calligraphy is the art of tracing beautiful letters by hand, a bit like the copyist monks of yesteryear! A whole program, which the Artelier de la Gartempe invites you to try, encouraged by Sylvie, a colorful artist.

- Step 1: we observe the technique and we say wow.
- Step 2: grab aprons, feathers and brushes to get started.
- Step 3: we tickle daddy when he is too focused

Always with a nice creation at the end, to be proud of the work accomplished. More than a creative workshop, the ARTelier de la Gartempe offers you a wonderful moment of sharing between little scribblers and great artists. Two hands, four hands, six hands: the more brushes, the merrier!
