Sketching Community: Honi’s Story and Our Circles

Tuesday, June 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Taking inspiration from the Talmudic story of “Honi the Circle Maker”, this session examines friendships and the role of the individual within the community. What circles do we belong to, and what will remain of us after we have gone? Combining text study and art we’ll explore a known story from a new angle and see how it connects to each of us personally. Please have basic drawing materials (pen, pencil, paper) at hand if you want to engage with the optional drawing prompts. No prior drawing experience needed.
