Learn and Create with the Jewish Studio Project

Join Bonai Shalom and the Jewish Studio Project for a day of creativity and overcome your creative inhibitions!  This Sunday, February 10 at Congregation Bonai Shalom 1527 Cherryvale Rd. Boulder.

There will be two workshops which can be taken individually or as a series.  On February, 10 the Jewish Studio Project will lead participants in two sessions. $36 fee per session for non-members.

The first session, Creative Inhibitions begins at 4:00 pm. Many of us are conscious of our inhibitions; yet are less aware that we also possess inherent creativity. Come learn a Jewish perspective on why creativity matters and what we might do to move through our inhibitions and reignite our creative spark. Together we’ll explore a framework for creativity rooted in Jewish texts and have a chance to “warm-up” our creative muscles through fun and collaborative interactive prompts. You’ll leave with new insights on creativity and the confidence to move through some of the inhibitions standing in your way. You can register for that session here. 

The second session, Created to Create at 7:00 pm, “In the beginning God created.” The opening chapter of Genesis creates a powerful case for creativity: we are all creative, we are created to create, and our creating creates the world. Together we’ll explore these lines and ask what wisdom they have for our lives today. In this workshop, we’ll add our unique voices to the voices of tradition through interactive text study. Then, moving from study to studio, we’ll activate our own inherent creativity through hands-on experience with art materials. Experience Jewish Studio Project’s unique methodology as we deepen our connections to one another, to tradition and to ourselves. You’ll leave refreshed and renewed with a new approach to sustain your creative spirit. You can register for that session here.

Rabbi Adina Allen is co-founder and Creative Director of the Jewish Studio Project. Adina has taught clergy, educators and lay leaders in hundreds of Jewish communal institutions across the country about the power of creativity to revitalize our lives and transform Jewish tradition.  For more information about the project visit www.jewishstudioproject.org.
