Local young artists will soon get a chance to expand their drawing skills while learning about a new language. Drawing with Hebrew Letters, sponsored by Sager and Sager and The Jewish Women’s League of Congregation Mercy and Truth, will introduce students to drawing using a creative language of letters and shapes. The graphic quality of the Hebrew alphabet is the perfect inspiration for teaching language through art. Students will create with ink, paper and color, learning to express with their hands what their imaginations see.
This free program is open to artists of all faiths. No prior drawing experience or knowledge of the language is required, just a desire to learn and create. Applications can be picked up at ArtFusion’s 254 E. High St. location or downloaded from their website at artfusion19464.org. Applications are due by March 31.
