Decoding Exhibitions

Preschool and elementary school
  • Throughout the school year
  • icone Duration : 1:30
  • icone 60 students

Did you know that, like a work of art, an exhibition needs to be decoded? In multi-age groups, students put on their spy hats and play a variety of fun games to decode secret messages. For example, they can build a bridge out of Lego©, sculpt a dream vehicle out of modelling clay, draw inspiration from a mentor at a Fab Lab in Peru, take a picture of their favourite artifact, or create a work inspired by artists showcased at Centre culturel Yvonne L. Bombardier across the street from the Museum.
