Art Project – Expressing the Parsha Through Art
We had some amazing art created by you for our Simchat Torah project to express each parsha visually. We would love more submissions before we host a virtual version of this art show over Zoom to share with those in our CBS community who weren’t able to see it in person. This is for all ages and artistic inclinations. Use an 8.5×11” piece of paper or other material and any art supplies you want. You can draw, paint, or choose key words from the parsha of your choice.
To sign up for a parsha, please check out the following link: http://bit.ly/parshiyot-choices, which will show you what is available, and submit your preference through a google form at this link: http://bit.ly/parsha-preference.
Take a picture or scan of your piece and email it to Melani Baker by Wednesday, November 25th.
Join us at the virtual parsha art show on Wednesday, December 2nd. RSVP here for the Zoom invitation.
