WUJS Israel Arts Jerusalem
Drawing inspiration from the surroundings of the world’s most special city, participants on WUJS Arts Jerusalem are able to combine studies in Hebrew language and Israeli art with their own personal art medium, be it visual art, performing art, writing, music or any other media.
WUJS Arts Jerusalem is designed for artists who want personal art time and opportunities to explore their surroundings and the country. In Jerusalem, artists are surrounded by spirituality, history, and a plethora of interesting people from all over the world providing wonderful inspiration.
Much of the week will be devoted to participants’ individual projects. Besides this, each week is complemented by either two art classes on “Art in Israel” and “Israeli film” or a day tour to a place in Israel. One of the benefits of WUJS Arts Jerusalem is that each participant will have a personal mentor with whom s/he can meet twice a month with an aim to find guidance and inspiration towards the final exhibition and for the art work in general.
WUJS is the only program in the centre of the country with an arts track. Participants on the WUJS Arts track can work with any art media. The track combines an internship with an independent art project (Sunday and Monday participants intern and Wednesday and Thursday participants work on their independent project and have their art class), lectures on all art media, field trips to various art institutions throughout the country, and a final exhibition where participants display their independent projects that they worked on throughout the 5 months of the program.
WUJS Arts Jerusalem is a wonderful opportunity to enhance your portfolio.
