Workshop Explores Childhood Memory as part of the Art Survives: Expressions from the Holocaust Exhibition

Seeing The World Through Art: Creating a Symbol from Your Childhood Memory
Workshop with David Feinberg
Sunday, October 30, 1-4:00 p.m.
Tychman Shapiro Gallery
Sabes JCC

Art is a way to investigate the world. During this workshop, create an artistic symbol from your childhood, using inspiration from the exhibit. Your symbol becomes your story and is expanded when shared and explored in a larger context. No artistic experience necessary, just an open mind!

For more information visit the Sabes JCC website.

Art Survives: Expressions from the Holocaust is on display through December 22, 2011.
This extraordinary exhibit showcases the work of five Holocaust survivors who use art as a means to approach all they witnessed. These artists created work during and following the Holocaust, and some still create art today. The colorful artwork created on the walls of the barracks and shreds of paper using coal and pieces of colored pencils are a testament to the human spirit, enduring against insurmountable odds.
