In this workshop, participants will explore the life and artistic expression of several different Jewish Artists, who had an influence on the general art scene of their times. Each week, we will begin by looking at a different Jewish artist, exploring their use of medium, form, color, and composition. The second half of each session will be hands-on as we create our own art in the style of the each artist. This is an in-person program, weather permitting classes will meet outside. No experience required, supplies will be provided.
