Small but super sweet Atiq + Pardes gathering this past Thursday night, where visiting educator Rav Alex Israel helped us truly see the unique personality of the biblical Isaac. We focused on Isaac’s tenacity in digging and re-digging wells, and his commitment to place, to sticking it out and making it work one way or another. We brought that learning into our own muscle memory by choosing a subject to draw or make in 3D form and returning to create the same subject over and over again. We then reflected: when did we notice ourselves getting bored, going deeper, finding another way to express the same things. So grateful for this amazing opportunity to collaborate with the Pardes Insitute!
