Join JCC Manhattan for an interactive virtual tour of the art and graffiti of the Florentine neighborhood in Tel Aviv, Israel with expert guide Niro Taub
. In this workshop, we will learn to understand the language, tools, and various styles of street art which have developed thanks to advanced technology, and the works and the artists in the international community as well as the timely topics that Israeli artists choose to create art around. Attendees will also be given the opportunity to create their own work of graffiti and as we examine what components of our personal and collective identity we choose to represent in our works. We will discuss the creative process of graffiti and touch on the various levels of the essence of what is Israeli, as well as local current affairs. Learn more and register here
