Course Details

Description

Explore Jewish concepts and their related Hebrew words in a chill environment using whatever form of creative expression learners will choose: Draw! Write! Sculpt! Make a song! Choreograph a dance! Do graphics! Code a video game - whatever gets you in the "zone." Each session starts with looking at the roots of Hebrew words related to Jewish concepts, then moves into communal and individual art-making. The course will finish by sharing whatever has been created in whatever state it's in (it's all about process, not product!). Through creative explorations, everyone can deepen their understanding of and connection to their Jewish identity.

Requirements
Quiet place with room to create stuff.
Supply List

You'll need to make sure you have your preferred art supplies (whatever you use to make the kind of art you like).
