Art Workshops for Children

This is a guide for adults to organise and execute artistic workshops for children, in the spirit of the workshops Hervé Tullet has run to great success all over the world.

Each workshop offers a list of materials needed, a step-by-step guide and Hervé Tullet's special tips for running successful workshops, as well as illustrated examples of outcomes and a photo album showcasing these workshops in progress.

With the Hervé Tullet Workshops, it's not about artistic ability as much as about the unexpected magic that can happen when people are given the freedom to be spontaneous and to create as a group.
