About the Program

Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!

Tuesday–Sunday, August 23–September 4: Community Mobiles—Create a mobile out of repurposed materials that celebrates the people of your neighborhood, including you and your family.

Saturdays and Sundays, September 10–25: Tzedakah Boxes—Using collage materials, make your own beautiful tzedakah box (tzedakah means “justice” in Hebrew), a container used in the Jewish tradition to collect money, ideas, or kind words to help the community.

Saturdays and Sundays, October 1–30: Harvest Lanterns—Inspired by the fall Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah (the New Year) and Sukkot (a harvest festival), honor new beginnings and create a unique lantern from natural materials.
