Workshops in schools and specialized Structures, Team Building

To allow the emergent artists to occur on stage, Article 4 aims at continuing to share the skills of the artists with the largest number by setting up trainings or workshops with a public coming from horizons other than artistic.

 
Indeed, over time and forts of our experiences, we had the pleasure to notice the benefactions of these various workshops or training. Peace, love, unity and havin' fun are values which drive us. That's why, during our various interventions, and whatever is the public, we noticed that the participants were more united and united at the end of the transfers of creation. For example, writing workshops allow to express themselves otherwise and the beatmaking to move closer to the participants who liven up around a common project. Every workshop allows each to express himself and to recreate a feeling of unity while having a freedom of individual creation which becomes an essential cog in the dynamics of the group.     

We also intervene in schools to to lead workshops with schoolchildren in situation of early school leaving (Marguerite de Navarre, Clermont, Jeanne d' Albret, Gabart), with the aim of bringing them a way of expression in adequacy with the structure which we welcome us. The objective being to take the drama out of the school and to restore to the pupils the envy to learn but also to give them a way of playful and effective expression.

The Article 4 association is a holder of the national approval of the complementary associations of the education at the departmental level.
