Early on a Saturday morning, in an otherwise blissfully empty gallery, a gaggle of brightly dressed children and adults line a corridor in the Musée national des Beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ). Armed with creative ideas and a love of anything arty, they're waiting for the atelier d'art to commence.

These workshops are offered by MNBAQ every weekend.
