NEW Tu B’Shevat : Tree Of Life Art Workshop
Trees occupy a special place in Jewish thought. They transform the earth and are capable of supporting other forms of life such as animals and humans. Trees have roots and they grow ever expanding: similar to our own spirit.

Express your creativity in this playful workshop led by Vancouver Artist Lori Goldberg and let her guide you through a step by step process in how to paint a tree . Embellish with color, collage images creating your own personal Tree of Life celebrating the beauty of yourself and the  power of the tree.
