This beautiful booklet tells the historical roots of Tu Bishvat and Judaism's long-standing sacred connection to trees. You will also find suggestions for activities for young children and ideas for hosting a Tu Bishvat seder.
InterfaithFamily and the Workmen's Circle are celebrating Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish New Year for the trees, and you're invited!
Join us for a FREE afternoon filled with food, music, art projects and social justice.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Join us Tuesdays in July from 11am–12:30pm for our first ever ZOOM Family Studios, an opportunity for kids (ages four and up) and their adult companions to explore the galleries with an artist, zoom in on a selected style or technique, and have fun creating art together in our studio. In July, zoom into abstract art from the exhibition Beyond Belief: 100 Years of the Spiritual in Modern Art and get inspired to create artwork using a variety of fine art materials.
Zoom into Color and Line
How do artists show feeling with colors and lines? Zoom into the abstract paintings of Helen Frankenthaler, Mark Rothko, and Brice Marden and create your own unique abstraction on canvas.
Zoom into Sculpture
How is it different to create in three dimensions? Walk through and around art and take in the many sizes and shapes of sculptures. Build your own unique sculpture in the art studio using fine art materials.
Zoom into Installation Art
How do artists transform a whole space? Explore the work of Teresita Fernández and enjoy a family challenge to create your own site-specific installation at the Museum.
Zoom into Painting
How do artists express emotion in their paintings? Look closely at the diverse collection of paintings in the exhibition Beyond Belief: 100 Years of the Spiritual in Modern Art and use a variety of paints and techniques to create your own work of art on canvas.
