A new Shabbat experience where our creative process becomes a spiritual practice! This intergenerational series brings together folks 55+ and youth ages 14 – 18, using the Jewish Studio Project methodology, to imagine a more just world through a combination of Beit Midrash – the study of texts from Jewish tradition and the contemporary world – and art-making. This is a space of possibilities, where everyone will have a chance to draw, paint, collage, or assemble – using whatever medium delights you each day. No art experience is required at all; it’s all free-form exploration and play. Three workshops, 2 hours each. This program is supported by a JSP microgrant. Learn more about Jewish Studio Project at www.JewishStudioProject.org.

Sharoni is an experienced educator and life-long learner across multiple disciplines, including pottery and other arts, Jewish Studies, Jewish Literature and local Toronto Jewish history.
