"Laughing is good for your health" ... this is not only a proverb, it is also scientifically proven! The human body makes no difference between unconscious and forced laughter. The exercises of laughing yoga are similar to the breathing exercises of classic yoga, although less meditative, but still very funny. How does one laugh when vacuuming? How does a mouse laugh? With Simone Lazzaretti, discover different types of laughter and do something good for your health!


MONOTYPE WORKSHOP WITH THE ARTIST JESSICA FRASCHT

Jessica Frascht is a Luxembourgish artist whose prints are dedicated to the composition of colours, shapes and textures. In this workshop, you will learn about the printing technique of monotype with selfmade gelli plates. With this technique – as the name already suggests – you can create prints that cannot be reproduced a second time. Each work is therefore unique!

Would you like to create a poster all by yourself? Then take advantage of our creative workshop for children during the Luxembourg Museum Days 2023!
