This is the eternal origin of art – that a human being confronts a form that wants to become a work through him… What is required is a deed that a man does with his whole being: If he commits it and speaks with his being the basic word to the form appears, then the creative power is released and the work comes into being.
-Martin Buber, I and Thou
The Jewish Artist Center was originally built by artist Gabriel Bass with the goal of educating Israeli artists in a dynamic setting. Today artists come from all over the world to work in our fully equipped studios. We work with each artist individually, by concentrating on their specific needs, according to their goals and abilities. Whether you want to build furniture for your new home, to develop a design in Judaica, or learn a new skill; we are here for you.
We offer courses and studio rentals to develop your skills, as well as residencies and apprenticeships, for more advanced training. At the Jewish Artist Center you learn every step of the process, from design rendering to production, from the most skilled craftsmen in Israel. We inspire you to achieve your highest potential.
We bring Jewish artists together in one central location. Both virtually and physically! By offering a free membership to artists, we have created a community of curious individuals who are ready to work together to learn, produce, collaborate, and enjoy each other’s company.
