For children at Sainte-Marie-de-Ré
  • A fantastic place with views over the ocean inspiring our workshops and excursions for children and adults.

    Teaching art and drawing the inspiration from excursions organised in natural surroundings was an idea that has been on Christine Malbosc’s mind for a long time. This professional picture framer has been an
    active volunteer for 30 years, and works for the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux and is also a member of the association Ré Nature Environnement. She submitted her project to the Mayor of Sainte-Marie de Ré, Gisèle Vergnon, who enthusiastically puts the Cabane Montamer at her disposal. This 30m² hut is situated at the seaside.

    The adventure begins in April 2010, the success of the various activities is due to word-of-mouth as they are much appreciated by the participants during all summer.

    Little by little, Cabane Montamer has become a real convivial meeting place: a library area for those who want to read while enjoying the beach, a table outside to have a snack or a drink, a terrace from which
    people can watch birds,…

    Drawing workshops are offered to adults and children as an introduction to watercolours and pastel inspired by nature: botanical excursions offer the opportunity to discover the rich local flora according to seasons; walks for watching the fauna with binoculars and books are organised by a member of the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux. Rides are organised for adults with the equestrian centre of the 4 Fers à l’Air at Sainte-Marie.

    Drawing, excursions in natural surroundings and other new activities are scheduled for 2011: photo workshop, flower arranging, La Nuit des Étoiles (Night of astronomy observation) (in collaboration with the astronomer of the Natural History Museum of La Rochelle), discovering mushrooms, and conferences, exhibitions,… La Cabane Montaner has really everything to become the Art & Nature Centre of the south of Île de Ré.
