Celebrated artist to conduct workshops

by | Sep 17, 2018 | What’s Happening

Sunday, October 21, 10 am and 12 pm,

Sandler Family Campus

Israel Today’s first ever artist-in-residence, Hanoch Piven, will lead two workshops during Super Sunday. The hands-on family workshops encourage creativity, communication, and self-reflection through the creation of collages with common, everyday objects. Piven conveys the message that playfulness is an important tool to be used to generate a space in which individual self-reflection and growth are possible.

In order to have a workshop based on found objects, a lot of random objects are required. Everything from buttons, labels, packaging, and keys to stickers, stamps, and small toys will come in handy as learners design portraits.

A collection box is located in the Cardo at the Simon Family JCC to drop off donations of “junk” to ensure that everyone finds what they need. This workshop, a part of the Simon Family JCC and Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Israel Today series and United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Super Sunday, is free and open to all ages and artistic abilities.
