The Jews were forbidden to study Torah so they developed the game of Dreidel as a decoy for studying.
They pretended to be playing and gambling but were actually praying and learning.
Today Jews are free to study and learn and Dreidel is a fun game that is played during Hanukkah.
This week the monkeys each painted their own Dreidel-
Each player starts with ten coins (usually chocolate Gelt coins)
Everyone puts one coin into the 'pot'.
One at a time each player spins the Dreidel.
If it lands on nun- You get nothing
If it lands on gimel- You get everything
If it lands on hay- You get half
If it lands on shin- you are shit outta luck (and put one in the pot)
Questions to consider while creating:
What does this art project about? What does it represent?
What shapes do you see?
What materials (mediums) are we using to create?
What type of paint are we using? (oil/water/ acrylic- we used acrylic a factory made polymer-based material which dries quickly)
Could this be considered a sculpture? (yes- it is three dimensional art)
