MORNING WORKSHOP WITH HANOCH PIVEN

A unique opportunity to meet Hanoch Piven! Come and play at one of the two workhshops he prepared for us. ENGLISH FRIENDLY! Appropriate for both children and adults.

Hanoch Piven is known for his portraits of celebrities, created from every-day objects. As part of this exhibit, space will be provided for visitors to create their own works of art!  ENTRANCE FREE. 

The colorful and witty illustrations of Israeli illustrator Hanoch Piven have appeared on the covers of major newspapers and magazines on both sides of the Atlantic. Piven's work is in the permanent collection of the Prints and Photographs Division of The Library of Congress in Washington DC, where he presented his award-winning book What Presidents Are Made of in 2004. Time Magazine What Presidents Are Made of as one of the 10 Best Children’s Books of 2004. Piven has published 6 other children’s books in the USA, his most recent being: My Best Friend is as Sharp as a Pencil, published by Random House in March 2010.

Since 2003, Piven has been conducting workshops across the globe. These workshops apply the principles of Piven's collage technique, prompting children and adults to experiment with common everyday objects to create their own works of art. Apart from being an easy and fun way to create art, the workshops have been embraced by educators, art therapists and management consultants as an efficient tool for raising psychological issues to the surface through play and creativity.
