Gaia - a woman who makes Porcelain Judaica Gift Art. The Shabbat candle holders seem fun, even if you don't include the candle holder aspect of it. They basically consist of a ceramic miniature room, or wall, complete with chairs, tables with flowers and paintings on the wall. Kids could recreate a wall of their home, or pick a famous painting of an interior or still life to recreate (Van Gogh comes to mind).
The Tzdakah boxes also seem fun to make; I don't know much about Judaica, but they seem like little banks or coin boxes...isn't there another word for that?

Subject: Art of Israel -Yaacov Agam
Dear Art Educators,
Several were interested in the art of Yaacov Agam. If you have done a
lesson - please share with me/the list. I would want images of your
students' work. Renah will be supplying a lesson plan for IAD. Below are
lots of links for Agam (I won't be putting all of them on my site) - and
some other Israeli artists. I really liked the work of Bracha Guy -
silkscreen artist. I wish there was more online (higher quality images). If
anyone explores this link http://www.israelartguide.co.il/ - post artists
and crafts people you admire (many silversmiths). I didn't explore it too
much myself. Save this email if art of Israel - or Agam - interests you.
