About the Program

Head to the Winnick Breezeway outside of Noah’s Ark to enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions, Jewish traditions, and the importance of caring for the world. Reinforcing the values of collaboration and community, these grab-and-go activities can be done anytime during your visit or taken home.

Current and Upcoming Projects

  • December 1–January 4—Helper Torches
    Embody the shamash or “helper candle” on a Hanukkah lamp by creating a torch that you can use to symbolically share your light with family and friends as you make new memories together.

  • January 5–29—Community Quilt Squares

    As part of Together for Good: Caron Tabb and the Quilting Corner, use fabric markers and reclaimed textiles to create a quilt square. Add your artistry and story to a Skirball community quilt or take it home and start a quilt of your own.

  • February 2–March 31—Purposeful Planters
    Celebrate the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat, or “New Year of the Trees,” by designing your very own planter pot using natural and repurposed materials.
