4th Grade Judaics Classes Create “Agam-ographs”


Our 4th grade students created an art project in the style of Yaakov Agam’s lenticular printing. Each student juxtaposed two images, a hand-drawn depiction of one or more of the Ten Plagues from their Humash studies, alongside a photo of a site or scene in modern Israel with that child’s photo superimposed, placing him/her at the scene. In true “Agam style” the artwork can be viewed from two different angles, revealing one picture or the other. In true “Krieger Schechter style” this project integrates Humash and Israel studies and reinforces a year-long 4th grade theme: “From Slavery to Redemption.”
