Inspired by the beautiful Lloyd Street Synagogue, this series of artist-led workshops will introduce you to a new way of looking at the Jewish Museum of Maryland’s campus and collections. Sessions will take place throughout our campus, both inside and outside. All skill levels are welcome, and our instructor is experienced in teaching all age ranges so please bring your entire family for a day or relaxation and creation.

 

 

No experience necessary! Spots are limited, and registration is strongly encouraged. Email tattwood@jewishmuseummd.org or call 443-873-5177 to reserve your spot today.

 

Most projects take at least two hours to complete, so we recommend arriving within the first hour of the program. All artists will be invited to display their art in a lobby display at the Jewish Museum of Maryland later in the year.
