Corinne Lewin & some very happy children at the gallery
Corinne Lewin, resident of Monaco, is one of the most respected international personalities in the art world.
Of course you do not have to be a child to visit the gallery and appreciate some of the outstanding contemporary works of art on display.
Corinne is very serious about wanting to help children appreciate art and discover the art within themselves, and for this reason she has launched a couple of projects that she proposes to follow with more.
With the main “Art School Project Genesis”, Corinne Lewin’s aim is to help children from the age of 5 to university age get closer to the world of art. People are often afraid to open the door of a gallery and enter, even if just to have a look. Perhaps they think they are not experts; that they are not well dressed, not rich enough, and so on.
As part of the “Art School Project Genesis”, children can visit the gallery and meet an artist who wears the Atrium T-shirt with his or her name on it; they are encouraged to ask questions and to learn. When they visit the gallery they are immediately asked to choose the art work they like best, take pictures, and afterwards, as a school project, write down their feelings and their impressions.
One may not be an art expert but everybody has feelings when standing in front of a picture, or a certain use of colours, a sculpture, an idea, a face, and even a
sentence…The art is part of our life and of the history of humankind.
