Around Rosh HaShannah last year Ma’alot’s Apter-Barrier Art Center was completed. It had gone from a simple, small building to a dynamic art center with spacious classrooms, rotating exhibitions and exciting plans for the future.
Here are some photos from our tour today:
The new and improved Apter-Barrier Art Center has probably quadrupled in size, and is enhanced with a spacious courtyard, beautifully suited for some special upcoming events!
Tami, the director gave us the “grand tour” of the new facilities and introduced us to one of their teachers – and everybody spoke in English.
For the opening night of the current exhibition, all of the featured artists attended and the event was broadcast live on the radio.
Classes for adults and children are available in intuitive drawing/painting, clay sculpting and spinning, glass fusion and stained glass. Classes in photography are coming in the future. They also have a two week summer camp for children.
This is the painting classroom. There are two more classrooms about the same size – one for clay and the other for glass. There are so many good things to do in Ma’alot!
