“History of the arts” circuits

The Centre Pompidou is developing new teaching resources designed especially for teachers, which include six “history of the arts” circuits. These resources propose itineraries through the collections which meet the requirements of the secondary level school curriculum of the B.O.E.N (Official Bulletin of the Ministry of Education).

The Centre Pompidou resources on partners’ platforms


Éduthèque (education library)

The Centre Pompidou is present on the free Éduthèque access portal set up by the French Ministry of National Education. This platform provides resources classified according to programme, training and visits. These teaching tools are available in high definition and will shortly be downloadable so that visits can be prepared actively, and lessons can be illustrated and enriched in the classroom. 

Nouveaux programmes du Bac, enseignement artistique (enseignement de spécialité et option facultative) : prochainement, une sélection de ressources (reproductions d’œuvres, vidéos..) vous sera proposée, répondant aux nouveaux programmes autour des pratiques artistiques en collaboration et en co-création entre artistes, de l’œuvre de Sophie Tauber-Arp et de celle de Bill Viola.

Pearltrees - digital library

Pearltrees is a visual interface of digital libraries enabling the Centre Pompidou to develop a community multimedia platform making teaching resources accessible. With help from functional typology and intuitive use, the digital libraries provide two approaches to the Centre Pompidou collections: “thematic” or “history of the arts”.

Its use makes it possible to keep resources up-to-date, according to the Centre Pompidou programme and the latest events there.
