Children Workshops

Experiencing arts is essential to a child's personal development.
L'Ecole invites young artists to discover their creativity, through workshops led by a designer from Van Cleef & Arpels' design studios, a jewelry mock-up maker or a gemologist. This initiative offers a playful and educational approach, enabling children and adolescents from 5 to 16 to explore the world of creative professions.
