This May, the Carmen Thyssen Museum invites you to discover new artistic techniques as part of the “Made in Paris” exhibition.

Throughout May, the Carmen Thyssen Museum is offering a new programme of activities and workshops organised in parallel with the exhibition “Made in Paris: The Generation of Matisse, Lagar and Foujita”, which can currently be visited at the museum.
The activities are suitable for all visitors and will introduce you to new artistic techniques. The variety of options on offer include creating clay sculptures, learning about Andorra’s heritage with memory games, and a fun introduction to the world of creative writing.

On 18 May, entry will be free in honour of International Museum Day.
