She runs tours for children and teens which focus on language skills and art education. Learn how other artists see and draw objects and spaces in the galleries. Experience a critique of the drawings made on the tour and ask questions. Learn to focus, to ‘see’ more, and to articulate and discuss artworks. These skills improve school studies and creative thinking in any profession.

Currently, Polly resides in Israel, and runs Jerusalem Sketchbook Tours.

i want to make a comment on the woman who came to my Sketchbook Event and said the Instructor did not show. This person did not contact me to Register. In order for me to know that I have students, on each announcement I ask people to contact me, either via email or telephone. Thank you! Since then we have had very good correspondence a few times and she understands to contact me and Register first.

Art Lessons : Drawing Sessions
Learn and have fun!
Your choice of subject matter for drawing!
1) We can study one Artist in the Art World each meeting. With this new knowledge, we do drawings about the artist's work and style. When you go to a Museum you will have an education, to be able to recognize and appreciate the artworks of the world.
2) Walking and drawing in nature.
3) Drawing from imagination.
4) Experiment in color. Use color to express light, temperature, use multiple color combinations.
I come to your home or preferred location, teaching adults, teens and/or children.

I just held an "Andy Goldsworthy - Sculpture in Nature" Workshop in the Maayan Wadi of Ein Kerem. This natural environment is full of fantastic materials to make works of art, inspired by the amazing artist Andy Goldsworthy! The participants used rocks, leaves, acorns, twigs, branches and all types of dried brush to make their sculptures. The supply of materials is endless - in shape, color and form. The ideas to assemble them are created on the spot!
See this artist on Google Images and come next weekend to do a sculpture of your own. We made photos of the sculptures which I will post. I will post a second group of "Andy Goldsworthy Events in Sculpture" in En Kerem for next weekend! This is a wonderful experience for any age! Polly Tessler [email protected]
