A Continuation of an Introduction to the Joy of Hebrew Letters and Lettering K’tivah with Rainer Adkins
K’tivah Tamah is Hebrew for ‘Calligraphy,’ and can be translated as ‘miraculous writing.’
Why? We’ll search for an answer via a succinct exploration of the origins and history of Hebrew letters and Jewish scribal arts, a few of the remarkable midrashic tales of the Alef-Beyt, and how to build and write a Sefardi-style script. This class will focus on hands-on practice. Class will be held over four sessions on Wednesday evenings: March 6, March 13, March 27 and April 3.
Rainer Adkins is an artist, educator and activist who made the murals in the Beth Shalom sanctuary and lobby. He believes learning ‘art in context:’ through the integration of culture, history, folk and wisdom traditions, social structures, and ongoing work for a just and peaceful world.
This a continuation of the class held earlier this year. For new students, there is a $10.00 materials fee payable to the teacher. New students are welcome, but the class will be primarily hands-on work and demonstration. If new students would like the more comprehensive orientation offered in the previous version of this class, please call the front office at (206) 524-0075.
