Have You Made Art About It? Intro to the Jewish Studio Process

  • Jewish Studio Project 940 Dwight Way #13B Berkeley United States (map)

Discover a new and accessible entryway into deep Jewish exploration, a democratized approach to creativity, and the tools to increase your capacity for empathy, curiosity, and connection. Each one of us has the ability to imagine, ask questions, play and wrestle with the raw materials of our lives to bring new insights into the world. In a Jewish context, our creativity can bring forth unique voices and diverse perspectives, making our tradition more vibrant and relevant.

This class offers an introduction to The Jewish Studio Process - a dynamic methodology that weaves together Jewish learning with expressive art-making as a tool 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. Attendance of this class will make you eligible for participation in the JSP Community of Practice series.

Have You Made Art About It? is co-led by an extraordinary mother-daughter team. Rabbi Adina Allen is co-founder and Creative Director of The Jewish Studio Project. Dr. Pat Allen is an artist, writer, art therapist and teacher who developed the Open Studio Process, the foundation of the expressive arts component of JSP. Her books include Art is a Way of Knowing, Art is a Spiritual Path, and the speculative fiction novel, Cronation.
