The Torah opens with a powerful case for creativity: we are all creative, we are created to create, and our creating creates the world. This four-part series offers a dynamic methodology that weaves together Jewish learning with expressive art-making and reflective writing in an uplifting and vibrant Jewish art studio. Together we’ll explore the power of these tools for social and personal change, allowing us to investigate our sacred texts, surface our questions, and envision new possibilities for ourselves and our world. No prior background or experience necessary. Pre-registration required for this four-part series.
