More information on the activities available at the Atelier Rodin

  • L'Atelier is four immersive and playful creation spaces interacting with the major works of Auguste Rodin!
  • Touching, assembling, exploring according to your desires, the space is designed to move from one activity to another, intuitively and without a set path. You have to move, turn around the sculptures to discover the space, the body and the third dimension.
  • The Atelier Rodin offers a journey into the world of the sculptor to discover the practice of sculpture
  • A material library is installed for explore materials and ways of practicing sculptureas well as the tools adapted to each technique:
  • Touching wood, marble, bronze ... and watch short, informative films that show and explain the steps involved in creating a sculpture according to the material used by the artist.
  • In the manner of Rodin, who created figures with fragments of sculpted bodies, children will be able to experiment with this technique with magnetic images to produce their own assembly!
  • Knead, feel, create, touch the material that comes to life under the fingers, modeling is the favorite activity of the youngest! Thanks to small molds reproducing the head of the "Thinker" or one of the "Burghers of Calais" (which the toddlers who have passed through the garden before will have recognized), the children will be able to install their sculpture in the exhibition gallery specially designed in the Atelier Rodin.
  • And as the adventure of the sculptor is also that of the model, pedestals have been set up for children to pose on Sitting, standing, with arm raised or thinking ... like the thinker!
