Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

Schools and day-care centers

The educational programme of the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris adopts a number of different pedagogical approaches to teaching an in-school and out-of-school public about modern and contemporary art. These multidisciplinary approaches (visual arts and sound, visual arts and movement, visual and plastic arts, visual arts and digital tools, dialogues, analysis of image, etc.) have been developed for different age ranges (from nursery school to lycée) and can be adapted for inclusive education classes or initiation classes for non-French speaking pupils.
Projects can be set up in collaboration with the teaching team.
Free training in the collections and exhibitions is also offered for teachers.

Several options are available

Lecture-visits: a way of learning about art from the permanent collection, or from temporary exhibitions.

Dialogue-visits: take place with a mediator from the Museum who suggests a themed visit to an exhibition. The visit involves verbal exchanges or observation games.

Activity-visits: provide keys for understanding through exchanges and dialogue between the mediator and the children. Sitting or standing in front of the artworks, they engage their sensitivity and their knowledge in a succession of drawing or making activities.

Self-guided visits: allow teachers or supervisors to organise their own tour of the rooms. Support documents can be downloaded from the Museum’s website.

Creative workshops: pupils immerse themselves in an exhibition and the world of an artist or an artwork and then get involved in a form of artistic expression in the Museum’s teaching workshops. The techniques used may vary according to the exhibition: painting, modelling, photomontage, creating sounds, multimedia, and more.

Conditions of access and reservation for groups

For security reasons, groups are limited to 30 people. For activity visits for nursery or primary schools, groups of more than 15 children must be split into two groups.

In all cases, reservation (exclusively by telephone) is compulsory and must take place at least three weeks before a possible visit. A letter of confirmation will be sent to the person responsible for the group.
