by the committee overseeing the organization of the Paris 2024 Olympics.

🎨🖼️Themes Covered in the Workshop

  2. Relationship with others: the concepts of friendship and love that support us in difficulties and make everything possible.

  3. Family: man, woman, child, and the crowd of humanity, all alike and all different.

  4. Birth and death: the grand cycle of life.

  5. These workshops aim to help children understand how we inhabit our bodies while exploring contemporary art.
