WUJS Israel-Arts Jerusalem


Program Description

Drawing inspiration from the surroundings of the world's most special city, Jerusalem, participants on WUJS Arts Jerusalem are able to combine studies in Hebrew language and Israeli art with their own personal art medium, be it visual art, performing art, writing, music or any other media.
WUJS Arts Jerusalem is designed for artists who want personal art time and opportunities to explore their surroundings as well as the country as a whole. In Jerusalem, artists are surrounded by spirituality, history, and a plethora of interesting people from all over the world. 
Much of the week of participants on WUJS Arts Jerusalem will be devoted to their individual projects.  We feel it is important to give artists time to explore their environment, which includes traveling out of the city to gather inspiration from other parts of the country. One of the benefits of WUJS Arts Jerusalem is that each participant will have a personal mentor with whom s/he can meet twice a month. The aim of the meetings would be to find guidance and inspiration towards the final exhibition and for the art work in general.
WUJS Arts Jerusalem is a wonderful opportunity to enhance your portfolio.
