image-ing the "Ger" - The Stranger  

In this class we will explore the theme of the foreigner, in Hebrew “ger”, and what this means for all of us, individually, nationally, religiously, and spiritually, in our personal lives and in the broader social context of America and the world. We will explore what the Torah has to teach us about gerim, and then use our discussions and learning as a springboard for our own artistic expressions.

Everyone will have the opportunity to create an artwork of handmade paper and a final multi-layered collage. In this class we will work small scale, make handmade paper, and cast pulp in molds. Once dry, the different paper components can be collaged together into a final layered artwork reflecting our thoughts and feelings about this theme. Sketching, drawing, and painting will also be part of the process.

Art and the Book of Kohelet

Thursdays, September 11, 18 and October 2
Drawing on the success of our other art programs, we will explore Jewish text, this time the Book of Kohelet (Ecclesiastes), and allow its words and imagery to inspire our own art.  Be it with paper, watercolor, pastels, or even glass, we invite artists of all ages and skill levels (even if you don’t call yourself an artist) to join us to learn the text and create a personal piece of art for Sukkot, under the expert guidance of Brooklyn artist Aura Shahaf-Woelfle and Rabbi Carie Carter.
