Hands Up

Raise your hand if you want to talk.
Last week I visited Gan Shikma (a kindergarden) in Yehud, Israel to do a little Artist visit and Workshop.
I promised the kids they will all appear in my blog so here we are.

I try to visit at least 2 kindergardens a year.  It is usually a lot of fun.
The kids, who watch my TV show, told me: "We saw YOUR HANDS on TV"
Here's one class......
and Here's the other....

That's really incredible, Hanoch.

Awesome Hanoch! I just did something similar on Thursday. It's a great thing to give back to the elementary school system, which at least here in the US has gotten so art depraved. It just means so much to kids to have an artist come and show them more about art. If you're ever planning a trip to Northern California, I'd love to hook you up with some schools here, let me know!

A mensch is someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being "a real mensch" is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous. --Leo Rosten, 1968. The Joys of Yiddish.

yeah yeah Paul but now lets talk about me.. Adam I enjoy it yet I can do it to certain extent. Makes you really admire the patience kindergarden teachers usually have. Thanks Barry but you know you are not on payroll here in Drawger to say niceties.

Hi Hanoch! I must say that this day was special for the kids, as I expected. You like children and you know how to "feel" them. I am their teacher and the first minut I saw you at the festival in Shoham. I knew that my children need to meet you and your creations. Thanks for all, and the kids was very happy to see not only your hands. Anat Elazar

Anat thanks for visiting the Blog. I have to tell you I was really impressed by how patient and sweet you are with the kids and how much you enjoy being there. I liked that sentence you said: "just getting all these hugs makes this job worthwhile".
