Ms. Malka's 6th grade -
San Diego Jewish Academy
Artistic interpretation of the first two chapters of the Book of Numbers
The panels below are a result of integrating the arts with Judaica studies. The students read the first two chapters of the Book of Numbers and were then coached on the creative process and ultimately how to create art that represented their interpretation of the readings. The students then recreated their work on canvas which was then made into a quilt.
