Likrat Shabbat: Kavanah through Art with Ava Rosen

4 Tuesday nights: April 24,  May 1, 8, 15; 7:00 – 9:00pm

Likrat Shabbat is a series of open ended, process-oriented art activities which start with kavanah (intention) and grow towards mindfulness, joy and connection. Each workshop will dedicate time and space to let go, slow down, and welcome in a restorative shabbat. Through the ritual of making, we connect mind, body and spirit, the benefits of which we continue to enjoy beyond the workshop.

April 24: Watercolor shemandalas: The mandala is a meditative art form practiced in many traditions which uses circular forms and repeating patterns. We will combine these techniques with watercolors to express the Oneness found in the Shema and to celebrate the cycles in our lives.

May 1: Wisdom Weaving: Weaving is one of the oldest art traditions across cultures. We will tap into the wisdoms that this ancient practice has to offer us, and experience the feeling when our hands, mind and spirit are aligned.

May 8: Creation Ceramics: Working with clay embodies the mystery of creation; the act of shaping something out of a chunk of clay’s pure potential is rich both physically and symbolically. We will celebrate Shabbat as the reward for the work of the week.

May 15: Suminigashi paper marbling: In floating black ink on water’s surface, we will delve into Shabbat’s themes of light and dark. The Suminigashi technique of paper marbling is a quiet, meditative process influenced by the subtlest movements of air whose results, when printed on paper, reveals a complex universe of organic curves and lines reminiscent of topographical maps and tree rings.

Ava Sayaka Rosen is a San Francisco-based poet and artist. She is founder of four eyes press, co-founder of Open Windows Cooperative, and Judaic Arts Coordinator at Congregation Emanu-El’s Youth and Family Education Program. She is interested in the intersections between art, spirituality, sustainability and healing.
