Create a colorful decorative pocket to hold family wishes for the fall season or Jewish new year using folded felt, fabric collage, drawing, and other found whimsical materials. Get inspired by artist Harriete Estel Berman’s playful patterns and reuse of metal objects as she honors the concept of tzedekah (charity) in designing your own work of art.

Explore new themes monthly in these drop-in art workshops. Paint, draw, sculpt, or craft a work of art inspired by exhibitions on view. 

Free with Museum Admission; children 18 and under are free.
