MIDWEST ARTIST RETREATS and JEWISH ART LECTURES (Scroll down for more details)
Focus on Artists and Styles
Jewish visual art, from painting and sculpture to ritual objects and architecture, offers important commentary on Jewish themes. The rich and storied world of our art, culture, tradition and heritage comes to life in Jewish art lectures that include:
45-90-minute presentations with high-quality projected images, or handouts with color images
Handouts with a road map and brief summaries about artists and holidays
A wide range of topics that correspond with Jewish holidays and themes (see below for ideas about individual programs or a series)
“Lilach's beautiful PowerPoint presentation on artistic interpretations of the Song of Songs added a dimension to text study that could not have been communicated in any other way.”
--Dr. Betsy Dolgin Katz, Kol Isha, Chicago
"Lilach weaves her deep Jewish knowledge together with her artistic expertise for a uniquely satisfying experience. Everyone loved it!"
--Cantor Rachel Rosenberg, Congregation Rodfei Zedek, Chicago
“Lilach is an extremely engaging and knowledgeable art instructor who really goes the extra mile to make the class informative and enjoyable. She even took the time to research the art in our synagogue and give our class a ‘guided tour’ of our own building during our last session! Extraordinary!”
--Leann Blue, Congregation Beth Shalom, Northbrook

Midwest Artist Retreats participants "Make Art"
Midwest Artist Retreats presents a unique opportunity for visual, literary, and performing artists to spend a few days making and critiquing art, surrounded by inspiring nature in Michigan and Wisconsin.
Join a select group of creative minds in a beautiful, tranquil, and comfortable setting by the lake. Immerse yourself in uninterrupted work during the day, and dine and exchange valuable non-judgmental critique with others in the evening.
Bring your materials to experiment with ideas and techniques, and prepare to share your work over a hearty dinner and a glass of wine.
