Inscriptions now open via the contact page on this website.



On this page you should find what you need to know about our upcoming

“Art in English” for children. If you don’t find everything you’re looking

for please don’t hesitate to

ask.

These events are open to all children give or take a couple of years and

there are still places available.


Whether they're learning English or improving their French, during these

moments of immersion with Jennifer de Bonnafos your children will discover

an exceptional variety of drawing and painting techniques, and things to

say about them. It’s different every time.


Language acquisition can then accelerate, when necessary, as we tap into

the wisdom of a playground skipping rhyme, sharing, performing,

progressing, gaining ground, memorizing together.



A portfolio of drawings, paintings and objects can usually be taken home

on the last day.





MARCH 2014

Four Days: MONDAY 10th TUESDAY 11th WEDNESDAY 12th THURSDAY 13th, 2014


110€/120€ Les Ateliers de la Gobinière


This holiday adventure is inspired by the culture of Ireland, springtime,

and the colour GREEN. We’ll be on the lookout for fairies and the make

believe leprechaun around the park.


Four whole days gives us plenty of time to take it easy. A song like

Greensleeves with the know-how of an old and gently powerful guitar, rings

a bell. Doing art-making, seriously, is what we all enjoy here.


This year we have an assistant, doing valuable research into teaching

languages through art. She has a “before and after” questionnaire she

would like you all to answer.


Bring along an art smock and the VIP very important picnic for the

children who are staying for lunch.


Supervised quiet play is provided between 12 and two for no extra charge.





APRIL HOLIDAYS


From Monday the 28th to Wednesday the 30th of Avril 2014: 


80€/90 €  9h - 12h  &  14h - 17h Les Ateliers de la Gobinière



The discovery of a new EXHIBITION at the Château de la Gobinière with

works in clay by Nathalie Gauglin and the paintings of Martine Hardy will

set the scene anew for the childrens’ own art studio adventure.


We’ll focus on drawing techniques and working with clay. Geometry in

nature and art, and the bright greenery and delicate spring colours add

their own special sparkle to our art.


Bring an art smock and a very important picnic for the children who are

staying for lunch. Supervised recreational play is provided after a VIP

picnic lunch, for no extra charge.



She sells sea shells in MAY




May 2014


2 half days from 10h-12h30 at La Guérinière on the Island of

Noirmoutier 60€




A few weeks after the Easter weekend, this special spring-is-in-the-air,

two mornings holiday event should be worth our while.

The beach with it’s play of waves, tides, driftwood and sea shells will be

all the inspiration we need. 

Noticing newness takes place while kids construct decorative forms in a

playful atmosphere of bilingual interaction. Children'll enjoy the

pleasure of sharing with their entourage by taking home their own unique

artwork on the last day.



SAUTRON is really sleepy in the summertime



Sautron is really sleepy in the summertime but the living is easy, and by

the end of August, things are hotting up again.



Thursday and Friday 28th & 29th August 2014


2 half days from 10h00-12h30 40€


In the heart of the old village of Sautron, the Bonnafos’ family has been

living in a lovely renovated “tonnellerie” going on two dozen years.

With summer in full bloom, children’s curiosity will lead them out the

back, into the intriguing atmosphere of an artist’s studio. Making art,

seriously, is what we all enjoy doing here; drawing, building and

painting.


Just across the road, a playground in the Parc de la Linière is a fun

place take a break or try out an extra-long skipping rope.





New on Wednesdays for the 2014/2015 school year.

Starting on the 24th September 2014, every Wednesday afternoon during term time.

16h15-18h Art in English for Children in Sautron
