ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Put yourself in the shoes of an artist or an explorer and learn all there is to know about art and history!
Whether it is as a museum guide, a temporary exhibition catalog or a monograph, each book from the "Happy Museum" collection can be read while visiting a museum, an exhibition or simply at home.
The concept is entertaining and interactive so that children can learn while having fun! Throughout the pages, you will find some games, observations, thoughts, creations, drawings and art history notions. Thanks to this varied and interactive content, children will be able to assimilate technical and theoretical notions like “still life”, “watercolors” and “impressionism”, which are sometimes abstract and difficult to understand.
From 4 years old and for the whole family (parents, grandparents and teachers).
