Celebrate Israel's 75th Anniversary with Special Guests Mela 

Sunday, August 27th-Workshops at 11:00 and 3:00. Falafel Lunch at 1:30 with Israeli Dancing and an art project for the kids.

Studio Mela invites you to get familiar with Israeli culture in the bond between food and art. An unusual combination that stimulates all the senses. This workshop is a practice of translation between two mediums, from an Israeli painting, to a multi sensorial experience. You will encounter artists and their canonical or contemporary works. Through guided imagination, you will learn to feel the painting and touch its essence.
