Event Description:

Using creative teaching methods, American art educator and professional comedy writer Maureen Kushner traveled across Israel, helping children break down barriers and move beyond fear by creating paintings about peace and war. Informed by their diverse faith traditions, these artworks by Jewish, Arab, Bedouin and Druze children are now featured in a traveling exhibit. Ms. Kushner will share images and stories about her journey and the inspiring vision of the children. Q&A will follow.  Admission is free. The exhibit runs through December at the JCC; school group visits are encouraged. Presented by Ann Katz Festival of Books at the Arthur M.
