The Secrets of Israel's Success: Innovation and Technology

“The Secrets of Israel’s Success:                                   Innovation and Technology”
Sunday, June 25 at 3:00 p.m.

Innovation comes comes in all shapes and mediums. From scientific discoveries and economical breakthroughs to literature and technology. But when you think of landslide accomplishments and notable awards, Israel may not be at the front of your mind. Jewish tradition and business ideals have formed the Israeli work ethic and shaped generations of great minds like Theodor Herzl, playwright and political activist and David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister. 

Learn more about Israeli innovations and technology! Join us Sunday, June 25th at 3:00pm in the MBA Library featuring Nir Maor of the Israel Institute of Technology.

Suggested Supply List

The following supply list is a suggestion if you are new to working on location or a check list for those with more experience. Some things are basic – something to paint with (brushes/palette knife), paint, something to paint on ( paper/canvas or panels) and something to hold it so you can apply the paint. We can refine future purchases at the workshop

First off – Things for you: You need to be wearing appropriate clothing – protection from the sun and the wind and the elements.  Note that neutral clothing is essential as the light bounce off of what you are wearing will reflect on the painting surface. Red shirt means red on your art which makes it really hard to judge color in your painting. White is glaring – for your eyes.
