Since it opened, the Fondation has made it sure to welcome young visitors with special events and workshops suited for them. These activities allow the younger public to discover the building, commissioned art works and exhibitions through a recreational, sensitive approach tailored to families and schools. So it was only natural that the Fondation joins the big birthday party of Le Petit Nicolas (“Little Nicholas”), the most famous schoolboy of all!
On Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March 2019, the Fondation and IMAV éditions invite you to a family weekend to mark this key work in children’s literature and to pay homage to its two creators: René Goscinny and Jean-Jacques Sempé.
10.00 a.m.-6.00 p.m.
AN EXHIBITION : GOSCINNY AND SEMPÉ
An exceptional exhibition of Sempé’s original drawings alongside texts by René Goscinny. Executed in India ink during the 1960s, these drawings have since become part of the collective imagination and reveal the extraordinary talent of one of the most famous duos in children's literature: Goscinny and Sempé.
2.00 p.m.-6.00 p.m.
A spectacular workshop conceived by Claire Faÿ and Les Éditions Animées will take place in the Auditorium at the Fondation. Children and their parents will be able to colour drawings of Le Petit Nicholas, which they will then see transformed into an animation using the BlinkBook app, and projected onto a large screen.
