Description Workshop Espace Dali

Children become trainee modellers, sculpting clay to produce their Dali-style self-portrait.
The guide will begin this journey taking you to the heart of Salvador Dali's imagination with an initiation into the terminology relating to sculpting by going through the lost wax casting and the pâte de verre techniques. When talking about this substance, Salvador Dali said: "I am enthralled by this new material which has the molecular elasticity of a snail and the consistency of a station in Perpignan"!

The guide will take you through the basic principles of surrealism, explaining the artist's key works such as the famous Melting Watches, Alice in Wonderland, Space Venus as well as the Lobster Telephone.

The experience then continues with a 1 hour workshop during which children let their imagination direct their hands in the clay to create their own surrealist sculpture, more specifically, their self-portrait.

The Espace Dali presents the only collection of its kind in France dedicated to the master of surrealism and is home to over 300 sculptures, pictures and lithographies, each one more surprising than the last.

Grade : CE1, CE2, CM1, CM2, 6ème, 5ème, 4ème, 3ème, 2nde, 1ère, Tle.
