What are your plans for this summer? Want to work with top artists in your field, gain studio experience, and enrich your portfolio? We have an amazing Israel summer program just for you!

  • · Expand your artistic repertoire while building your portfolio!

  • · Create art in an inspiring and professional environment!

You can do all that and more on ‘ISRAEL BRUSHSTROKES’! Come discover Israel through a different lens! Work and interact with Israeli artists and let your creativity flow at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.

Spend your summer in Israel while participating in professional art workshops, interacting with Israeli artists and creating art with Israeli art students. You will travel off the beaten track to explore sites around Israel while immersing yourself in the amazing art scenes in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Art Workshops during the program will include:

  • · Painting – oil, watercolor, acrylic and more, painting is a fluid and changing form of expression which we will use to explore the fluidity of our artistic voices.

  • · Drawing – charcoal, pencil, ink or chalk, many substances can leave a mark in this foundational art form that can be the beginning of the work or the work itself.

  • · Printmaking – since there has been art there has been replication and reproduction.  If you are not yet familiar with intaglio and linocut, you soon will be.

  • · Sculpture – when the concept must come up off the page, when materials must be assembled to leave a figurative mark rather than pressed to paper for a literal mark, sculpture takes form.

  • · Analog Photography – put aside your digital camera and smart phone and dive into the world of lens and frame, darkroom and development.

  • · Pottery – The potter’s wheel is where craft meets art, form meets function, where vessel and symbol intertwine.

  • · Animation – if you can only name 3 or 4 types of animation you are missing a couple dozen. We will experiment with some of these techniques to explore the art of ideas in sequence.

  • Dates: July 13th – August 11th, 2017

  • Eligibility: Entering 10th-12th graders

  • Cost: *$4,000 (not including Flight)
