Using Ritual Objects as Provocations: Supporting Young Children’s Choice and Voice in the Classroom

About this Event

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a snapshot of the Jewish Museum’s collection and will have the opportunity to discuss and question how to bring art and artifacts into your classroom.

We will explore key questions such as:

  • How can you create a culture of wonder and questioning through observing and examining art?
  • How does the supply of materials help children make choices in art making and provide opportunity for them to share personal stories?
  • How can we foster a process-focused art curriculum while exploring the creation of ritual objects such as a menorah or a tzedakah box?

We’ll also participate in our own process of art making and consider creative connections between our observations from the exhibit and the process of engaging in creating Jewish inspired art. We hope that you can join us for this rich morning of creativity!
