Interactive tours are free with a yearly institutional subscription (school, association, recreational center, etc.) to the Villa du Parc Association. You can download here the membership form.
Art center docents are available to answer your specific questions. How to approach a work of art can be seen from a number of angles, as a matter of art history, a question of technique, etc. Feel free to ask questions to prepare your visit to the show.
— Self-guided tours
For each of its shows, La Villa du Parc publishes an accompanying gallery guide of the featured artworks that provides you with lots of information about the project on view along with the biography of the artist(s). The texts help you to situate yourself from one gallery to the next with a map of the exhibition layout and the artworks on view, while offering more detailed information on each piece that takes the place of traditional wall labels.
Please let us know if you are interested in a self-guided tour and its accompanying brochure.
Tuesday through Sunday, 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm, free admission

— Schools: from the first year of nursey school to the halls of higher learning
Throughout the school year, our exhibitions can be used as an educational tool that becomes an integral part of school programs in the fine arts and more generally the visual arts. But contemporary artworks involve a number of fields that largely go beyond any purely artistic framework and draw on all scholarly disciplines, from literature and history, to geography, science, and more. Touring an exhibition, in this or that exchange with an artist or docent, students of all ages develop their eye, stumble on a surprising piece of art, learn, and examine what they know or think they know through the many questions raised by the approaches taken by today’s artists.
For further information, see our page Education artistique
Exhibition tours are adapted to all official groups, including workers’ groups, associations, recreation centers, clubs, etc.
— Musical initiation
La Villa du Parc regularly offers workshops in musical initiation for babies and toddlers from 3 months to 3 years old. The workshops are run by Morgane Frémaux, who holds a degree in stage design from École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris, another in tuba from the Conservatoire d’Amiens, and a third in musicology from the Université de Paris 8.
Built around the exhibitions featured at La Villa du Parc, these musical initiation workshops invite families to discover contemporary art through music. They help to awaken very young children’s senses in three areas, touch, hearing, and sight. For parents, the aim is to share a special moment with their child while offering them a few elementary keys and tools for approaching both music and contemporary art.
La Villa du Parc offers arts and philosophy workshops designed for children from 6 to 12 years old. Taking as her starting point the works of art featured in the show currently running, the artist and philosophy workshop host Céline Ohannessian helps kids to reflect and articulate their ideas. Each participant in turn will speak up, debate, and give their point of view.
— Writing in French
Through a few invented instructions, Marie-Pascale Saillet invites you to see and then write about the artworks in the show currently on view.
