Holiday camp for children from 7 to 12 y.o. in Lausanne and Montreux: 
art + science

Inspired by the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Maurits Escher, Piero della Francesca and other great scientists and at the same time artists, we have created this course in collaboration with XLABS Lausanne. This mixture of art and science opens up horizons and offers your children the possibility of exploring the world through a multidisciplinary approach: making the paper, your handmade watercolors, pastel pencils, markers and then using them to create your works of art.
