Art Exhibition by the Children of the Lighthouse
Translation: Courtesy of Bernadette Blain
On March 16th, the children of the Lighthouse presented their works of art at an opening (Les éTOILES du Phare) with 13 other artists.
These artists introduced many original ideas to the Lighthouse and gave the children the opportunity to experiment with stimulating techniques, such as enamel on copper, art bot, dripping, black light painting, collage, and print making.
Working closely together to create their pieces, the artists and children developed a very special and magical relationship. Each work of art reflects a beautiful encounter during which the children experienced unforgettable moments, filled with laughter and love, thus perfectly resonating with the Lighthouse’s motto: having fun until the end of life!
Art therapy is part of the many activities that the Lighthouse organizes for the children. Because of the children’s disabilities or vulnerability in the face of death, this type of activity helps them express their needs and emotions.
