Piven To Life

While the Piven Workshop is a natural fit for your Arts and Crafts program, we believe that Israel should “live” everywhere, and the five thematic portraits of Ben-Gurion that Piven created can have resonance in many areas around camp.

Israel Up Close

In this workshop, campers will engage with Hanoch Piven’s new series of thematic portraits based on the likeness of Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, and then create a variety of portraits using found objects that tell stories they want to share.

The Stories That Portraits Tell

In this workshop, campers will be introduced to Piven’s work and will assess the objects used to create portraits of prominent Israelis. Then they’ll have an opportunity to create their own self-portraits using Piven’s methodology.

Piven created a video, recorded in his studio in Jaffa, Israel, describing his methodology and sharing stories.
