Drawing Connections: Sketches for Hanukkah


Whimsically-shaped, geometric menorah. Colorful, abstract objects are carefully balanced, almost like a mobile. It features a Star of David and a Dreidel shape.

1 – 3 pm EST
Zoom, Virtual Program

During this virtual drawing class, participants will learn about Hanukkah by exploring both the form and function of ceremonial objects, discussing artwork connected to the holiday, and engaging in sketching activities. Inspired by the Museum’s collection, we will experiment with a variety of drawing techniques such as line, contour, gesture, and shading to create a series of sketches for Hanukkah.

Participants should have access to a computer with a camera and WiFi and will receive a Zoom link prior to the program date. If you do not receive your email confirmation within ten minutes, please check your spam folder.

All skill levels welcome.
