Sunday, February 12 11:00AM-12:30PM
at the Museum of Jewish Heritage
We all can’t wait till spring…and this time our Kompot will be as flourishing and green as ever! Dedicated to the very green holiday Tu B’Shevat that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees, when the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.
We will blossom within ourselves through the arts and surround ourselves with wonderful green materials. We will learn that the fruits of the rich land of Israel can be used not only to feast on but also to create with! We will try a few techniques of creating “living paintings” made of moss and plants, learn how to create patterns for compositions, and braid branches to make decorative wall compositions. We will enjoy our joint art project and create something small for our houses. We will enable all our senses: sensory, motor skills, and, most importantly – our imagination. We will touch on the philosophical topics of growth and flowering as part of the life cycle. Let’s just have fun in an interactive creative environment!
Interactive art workshops will be led by an amazing educator and artist Maria Budnitsky.
