Drawing from Nature
with Leah Korican

Drawing is a wonderful way to deeply connect with the visual world. We will take our inspiration from the landscape around us; zooming in on details or meditating on a larger landscape. No prior experience is necessary. You will be gently guided in techniques for seeing and drawing whether you draw all the time or have not drawn since kindergarten. All ages are welcome.

Singing Circle
with Hazzan Shulamit

In the beauty of the meadow, let’s circle round to sing together and soften our senses to sweetness of shabbat afternoon. We’ll revive some songs from the monthly Kehilla Sings! gatherings and learn some new tunes, too.
