Liat Walker, Jewish Studies Coordinator and Shana Gutterman, Art teacher from the Martin J. Gottlieb Day will be holding a workshop for our 4th – 7th grade students and parents that will incorporate art, creativity and innovation on February 2nd at 9:15 a.m.
Students and parents will explore a hands-on project that will connect participants in a unique way to their Judaism.
Parents and students will create a visual interpretation of a prayer by constructing an automata (a moving mechanical device). This activity is based on the notion that exploring prayers through visual arts is one of the most effective ways to cultivate creativity and deepen our connection to the prayers (Tefillah).
Materials will be ordered and provided. Please let me know if your child is unable to attend. This will be an incredible opportunity for our students that I know they and you will NOT want to miss!!
