L’Ecole de l’Arbre – Sec and the Museum – the partnership continues

Renewed for another three years, the partnership between the La Samaritaine, L’Ecole de l’Arbre-Sec and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs continues apace. Encompassing all classes of the school, this year the partnership showcases the architecture and decorative arts at the time of the Expositions Universelles, or World Expos, of 1900 and 1925. Students take part in creative workshops led by artists, and guided research using materials from the collections of the Bibliothèque des Arts Décoratifs, or decorative arts library, to  discover other crafts and skills through La Samaritaine’s renovation project.

 

Here’s a slide show of images of this year’s project, created by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs’ public education team.
