As places for learning how to observe and for awakening artistic awareness, museums are nowadays an essential complement to schools. The educational service forms the link between the museum and the academic establishment. Through an understanding of the artworks, its purpose is to provide students, from kindergarten through to the last year of high school, with the tools and insights that will enable them to gain an active and lasting awareness and acquaintanceship.

In order to help teachers and educators prepare their visit to the museum, the educational service is available to discuss and develop tailor-made programmes.

Educational packages allow teachers and educators to prepare their visit. They offer insights into understanding an artist’s life and work, as well as teaching aids on Gaston Chaissac, Victor Brauner and each temporary exhibition
