Rachel Brask recently worked with Chabad Harvard to lead a paint night themed for the Jewish Tu B’Shvat holiday. Rachel created a custom painting that incorporated many fruit-bearing plants highlighted as part of the annual celebration of trees: fig, date palms, almond, olive trees.
About 25 people received step-by-step instruction on how to complete the design on a canvas of their own, that they could take home at the end of the night. After demonstrating each step, Rachel would walk person to person to assist each individual with any questions about the painting process, clarifying steps up close, offering encouragement, and helping to “fix” the parts that guests asked for assistance with to stay on course.
