Intervention in the school "Leo Férré" of Ambrières les Vallées (Mayenne - France)
This intervention is in keeping with an artistic and cultural project promoted by the french Department of Education, worked out by the headmaster in collaboration with the teachers, then examined, accepted and financed by the Rectorship.
This project, multi-field, makes it possible for children to work on the syllabus of History in connection with Literature and Arts.
This type of project has to integrate an artist, so that the children open up for other activities that the standard school work, and at the same time end to an individual and collective creation.
In accordance with an idea of Mrs Francette Perin, headmaster of the School "LEO FERRE" in Ambrières-Les-Vallées in Mayenne, some 72 pupils worked at the creation of a Tarot deck according to the traditional "Tarot de Marseilles", under the combined talents of Mr Gilles Heuzé, Plastic Art teacher and Pierrick Pinot, Illuminator-Painter...
... And I guess it is the most beautiful and singular Tarot deck I have ever seen !
