In 2018 the museum adheres to the project We Draw art promoted on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 April by the Abbonamento Musei.it association. The initiative, now in its fourth edition, features children in numerous cultural sites in Piedmont. The small subscribers, all their friends and their families will be able to visit and discover the museums of the Region in a special way, drawing with Faber – Castell pencils and felt pens the works, the spaces and the architectures that most characterize them and thus give new shapes colors to the immense cultural and artistic heritage of our territory. Children and their families can thus live an unusual and enjoyable experience within the cultural sites of the Region. Much more than a museum workshop, the initiative is a unique opportunity to reinterpret the beauties of the territory, allowing itself to be conquered by the art of drawing, which becomes not only technical but also a tool for interpreting collections, architectures and in general suggestions that the museum spaces produce in young visitors.

In agreement with the municipal administration of Ovada, the museum will propose Saturday, April 7 at 430 pm the workshop for children (6-11 years). We draw the Paleontology (Drawing the Lost World) conducted by Marco Gaglione.
The museum is transformed into a plateau of deep South America, where a small group of brave explorers will discover animals deemed extinct and will try to immortalize them for the unbelievers left at home: welcome to the LOST WORLD !!!

The workshop will start at 4.30 pm (meeting at the museum at 4.15 pm) and will last about one hour and will cost € 5.00 per person.

Participation is allowed only with reservations required to be made by calling the number 3477520743 (Alberto) from 5.00 pm to 7,30 pm.

We hope many of you will come!
