LE PRINTEMPS DU DESSIN

Since 2007, with the launch of the Salon du dessin, Christine Phal and Carine Tissot, collectors and enthusiasts of contemporary drawing, have brought together a community of art lovers, professionals and curious people eager to support contemporary creation. By setting up Le Printemps du dessin, they want to make a great drawing festival at the national level from March to June.

 

From mid-March to mid-June, we federate the drawing exhibitions that take place in institutions or art centers and all actions such as workshops, workshops, conferences and meetings between the artist and the public. Thus the medium of drawing in all its forms allows different audiences (school, prevented, etc.) to be as close as possible to artists and creation.
