About the Program

Bring your family and dive into new adventures in art-making every Sunday. Experiment with a variety of techniques as you create artwork that connects to the exhibitions on display, the unique architecture of the CJM, or Jewish holidays and traditions. 

In celebration of Beyond Belief: 100 Years of the Spiritual in Modern Art, explore the processes of great modern artists like Rothko, Pollack, and Klee as you paint, sculpt, and explore the world of abstract art with a different focus each month.

Build it Big and Small  
Aug 4, 11, 18, 25  
 How does the size of an artwork change your experience of it? In August, discover the importance of scale in sculpture as you add to a large collaborative installation and build your own miniature three- dimensional creation. 

Colorful Beginnings    
Sep 1 
In honor of Rosh Hashanah, use printmaking techniques to create note cards for your friends and family that celebrate new beginnings. 

 Young Architects Workshop

In conjunction with Architecture in the City, and in honor of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, design a sukkah using a variety of fine art and recycled materials. Add to our temporary sukkah installation and create your own miniature version to take home.

Lines and Shapes on the Move
