How does Zshuk Museum Education Series stand out?

  • Zshuk tours are created with an idea of promoting children’s cognitive development, through exploration of art materials and techniques used by the artists to stimulate imagination, help children construct meanings about the world, build upon experiences to express a personal vision; develop a global perspective and recognize the power of art to communicate beliefs and values.
  • all Zshuk tours are led by a professional artist and pedagog .
  • each tour focuses on a particular work of art, artist or culture with an idea to give children a very specific in depth experience
  • children use professional art materials.
  • prior to each trip a teaching artist conducts thorough research in order to build clear and age appropriate connections and develop a immersive educational experience for the children.
  • each tour children listen to a story and look at picture books that unveil the life of artists, cultural background or mythology of the work they will view.
  • all parents receive personal e-mail reminders about the tours and the information about what happened during the previous tour.
  • at the end of the year each student receives a special portfolio containing their work, and a special Certificate of Connoisseurship.
  • the artist/educator maintains appropriate standards for the children’s behavior using non-punitive method that teaches self-discipline while supporting children’s self-esteem, promotes mutual respect and models problem solving skills and gears the program to the needs of the individual child with concern for the child’s interests, special needs, special talents and individual style and pace of learning.

NEW Fall Art Program

 

 

 

 

 

PROGRAM PREVIEW PHOTOS

New and exciting program that emphasizes Jewish learning, art, and pedagogy in a fun environment for children and parents. Our curriculum has connections to beautiful Jewish texts, stories, multidisciplinary creating, and concepts and teaches children to think deeply, flexibly, and imaginatively. As a result children are able to construct a very personal connection to Judaism, express themselves and to become self-reliant, creative, and independent thinkers. At the end of the semester everyone will be able to participate in a spectacular Theatrical Performance Show for the entire family!
