Kindling Creativity: A Chanukah Workshop for All New York Area Educators
Participants connected to their creativity and explored the power and purpose of art-making.
Chanukah literally brings light into darkness, accessing our creativity can bring light into these dark times. Participants connected to their inherent creativity and explored the power and purpose of art-making as a pathway for personal renewal in this moment of challenge and change.
Together we engaged in meaningful conversation of Jewish texts on Chanukah and took pen to paper through hands-on creative exercises as we tended our inner flame and cultivated resilience.
Date: Wednesday, November 18th
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET
Who: For All New York Area Educators
