In February 2017 I was honored to be resident artist at Temple Israel of New York. It was a wonderful example of great organization and participation by a community. Over the course of 1 week we held workshop for just about every segment of the community: children from kindergarten to 6th grade, teenagers, young professionals, families and teachers. Close to 500 people got to create their self portraits in over 8 workshops that we conducted. I take off my hat to Shahar Peled and Rabbi Jim Stoloff who coordinated that week. Shahar worked with me through 6 months of preparations to make sure we had enough materials, and that everyone in the community was aware of the workshops so to ensure participation.
Here are some pictures below.
Here's Shachar with his self portrait.
