Dessine-moi un château




“Dessine-moi un château” is an educational, artistic and cultural project undertaken by the Palace of Versailles, the General Council of the Yvelines department and the association Ecole d’Art au Village. The exhibition of photographs “Dessine-moi un château. Photographies de Gondar à Versailles” (photographs from Gondar to Versailles) presented in the Estate of Madame Elisabeth prolongs this educational project.

The educational project lasted a year, 2010-2011: pupils in Ethiopia and the Yvelines department were confronted with their architectural heritage, received lessons in artistic techniques and discovered the heritage of the other children.

The exhibition from 22 October 2011 to 29 January 2012 in the Estate of Madame Elisabeth is both a prolongation and the culmination of this project: it presents some of the drawings produced by the pupils as well as compositions based on these drawings made by the artists, plastic artists and photographers of the association Ecole d’Art au Village.
