Painting classes for adults starting next week!

by The MEM Project / February 01, 2012

The MEM Project started 2012 by engaging 10 adults in a January Jewish papercutting class that has allowed participants the opportunity to connect, create, and explore. Though billed as a beginner class, students quickly gained the skills they needed to create intricate papercuts and sometimes surprised themselves in the process! Check out these pics from class:

Our next class starts next week and will take place over the course of four Monday evenings. The February painting class, "Exploring Jewish Symbols and Jewish Spirit," will introduce students to acrylic painting techniques as we create two canvas paintings. Classes are four sessions, will take place in Somerville, and are heavily subsidized by a generous Young Adult Community Grant from CJP in an effort to encourage participation. It's a great deal, plus participants will be able to create art, meet new people in the community, and engage in art and in Judaism in a whole new way. We only have a few spots left! Register on the website today if interested.

Our March course offering is still being decided by the community. Watercolor? Collage? Seder plates? Vote for your preferred class online.

The MEM Project seeks to engage individuals through the artistic process as a means to explore Jewish identity; and offers Jewish art workshops to young adults in the greater Boston area.

Hope to see you in class!
