Courses at the Jewish Artist Center

The Jewish Artist Center offers a variety of courses for all ages and skill levels. We work individually with each student to help shape the curriculum and projects based upon their goals and abilities. In our classes you design and build work that has meaning to you. Guided by our professional staff, you will quickly learn the tools and skill necessary to improve in the technical and creative process, and return home with work that you have made. Courses are offered all year long as weekly courses, meeting once a week for three hours; intensive workshops that run four days a week for two to three weeks; and an accredited four-month program.

Classes meet once a week for around 2 hours, with a minimum sign up of eight classes. Space is limited. Join anytime space is available. Specific time may be flexible depending upon your schedule.

Intensive Courses

Intensive courses attract visitors to Israel. Offered a couple times yearly these three-week courses are perfect for the artist from outside Israel to be intensely involved in art in Israel. We work with each artist individually to create a space for their creativity to be expressed. Whether you plan to build an ark for your synagogue, a chess board for your son, or a sculpture for commission inspired by your experience in Israel, this is the perfect workshop for craftspeople with previous experience, although it is not a requirement. Classes meets four days a week for three weeks. Local housing available in a variety of budgets.
