About the activity

Going through the exhibitions in the company of a guide, toddlers learn about art and gently discover the shapes, colors and subjects of the works on display. A creative narrative of the visit, an invitation to share a unique moment around a story inspired by the works and where the imagination has no limits.

"A very, very, very (really very) small setback"
Jack has a big secret: he has the power to become minute. It's thanks to this astonishing ability that Jack meets Nina, whilst he's asleep in the pocket of her coat. When he wakes up, he can't believe his eyes and ears: he's on visit to an artist's studio on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England.

"Puzzles and knick-knacks"
Creating an exhibition isn't so simple. Especially when the exhibition in question includes the installation of one hundred giant skulls. But Jack and Nina have more than one trick up their sleeves and they accept the challenge: that of making sure everything is ready in time for the exhibition to open to the public.

"Like a fish in soup"
Nina loves being told stories and loves being taught things. She loves it so much that sometimes, secretly, she sneaks into the exhibition areas to listen to what the works have to tell her.

"Strawberry fields"
Is there a strawberry plant in the Fondation Cartier's garden? That's the question the two friends ask themselves. Determined to know for sure, Jack and Nina take us with them into all the nooks and crannies of the garden and the building, where we discover invisible trails, hidden works, and curious sunbeams.
