No family crest – no problem! No personal logo? Get busy! We’ll provide the base on which to design a personal, clan, artistic guild or community, banner. These can be painted, embroidered, sewn, and embellished with a variety of materials. Then, at the conclusion of the week, we will carry them in procession. Want to create an ode to your creative work? A blessing for those you love? Do you love Ottoman red and gold? How about a shop sign for our invented ghetto or shtetl? Simkhas torah is around the corner. Occupy!
Textile artists, workers in soft-sculpture, and others who are comfortable and interested in working intensively as artists and teachers with students of a range of ages and experience levels will enjoy this program. The format is informal instruction in an open studio setting. The visual arts program collaborates with other faculty, especially in the theater and kids program. We will also be working on decorations and costuming for this summer’s large dance party (an actual wedding!) and camp-wide events.
