    Educational Service

    The educational service of the Foundation Espace Ecureuil wishes to provoke and stimulate the link between contemporary art and the pupils of the Regional Education Authorities from Toulouse, from nursery school to Sixth Form College.

    The educational service has worked for twenty years within the framework of a partnership between Caisse d'Epargne Midi Pyrénées and the Regional Education Authorities of Toulouse. It offers all teachers the means to bring artworks within everyone's reach and transform the visit of the Foundation into a real teaching aid.

    - Special meetings with the artists who will guide the visit of their own exhibition.
    - Files are available to be read on site or to be downloaded and there are documents intended to facilitate the understanding of the works, offering clues as to how to use them as teaching materials.
    - An itinerant exhibition is available for schools distant from Toulouse.

    Each year, the educational service reunites ten schools from the Regional Education Authority around a project the theme of which is an exhibition of the Foundation. This project, which is based on visual arts, wants other disciplines and other levels of knowledge to be involved too.
    The climax of this event is an exhibition drawn from all the classes involved in the project which will be held every year on the picture rails of the Foundation.

    The Foundation is working in partnership with the Education Authorities of Toulouse.
