In collaboration with Beit Halochem, sponsored by the Legacy Heritage Foundation


"Unbounded Art," March 2010 Exhibition of works by participants in the Artist's Class for disabled IDF soldiers and veterans

In the Artist's Class project a group of disabled Israel Defense Forces veterans meets weekly to engage in art. The goal of the project is to facilitate participants' progress in using techniques in the language of art, from the level of training and skill acquisition, to the level of personal expression of their thoughts and feelings in the language of art. The sessions include activity, observation, listening, guided tours of exhibitions and lectures. The nature of the group and time spent in the Museum gradually become a creative-social process.

 


A variety of expressive media were made available to participants in the workshop. Participants particularly learned oil painting techniques and sketching.
