Omanut (art) in all its Many Splendored Glory!
The Omanut Building bustles all day with activity. For many of our chanichim (campers), this is their “Happy Place”. There is plenty of creativity, color, and camaraderie. These Machon and Nivonim chanichot (campers) made beautiful pieces of jewelry under the guidance of Chug (elective) leader Shani Balter Calderon.
Ryan Lavigne is the Rosh Chug Ceramics, and these Machon and Nivonim chanichim are in the process of creating useful and beautiful pieces.
Tamar Rappaport is Rosh Chug Print-Making. These Machon chanichot are making their own original, handcrafted, Net Printed T-shirts.
Silk Painting Chug, headed by Yehudit Harris, is where these Machon and Nivonim chanichot have the opportunity to create beautiful pieces including Hallah covers and pillows.
Eyal Chirurg is Rosh Chug Hand Drawn Animation. This is his 7th summer here at Ramah Palmer, and he loves the Omanut Department where the chanichim and Tzevet (staff) are passionate and enthusiastic. Eyal has contributed many works of art to our machane (camp) including signs for the Omanut Building and our new Hava (farm) — one that says “Lul” and one that says “Pinat Chai”, as well as brilliant T-shirt designs for our Gan and Tikvah program. Eyal works professionally as a freelance illustrator and animator, based in Tel Aviv. These Bogrim chanichim are learning how to draw characters, and to prepare are watching the classic animated movie, Walt Disney’s “Steamboat Willie”.

Our Digital Photography Chug is led by Dawn Weiss Smith; these chanichim from adat ha-Nivonim are hard at work, learning new skills and creating original art — and having fun!
