BOARD GAMES IN THE CLASSROOM

Gamers gather around a table to unbox a new board game or bring out an old favorite. Together, they enter into a unique experience of mental challenge, social interaction, and creative play — an experience that draws them together.

POETIC LANDSCAPES:DITA JACOBOVITZ

Most of my landscape paintings are from my Residential area and from north Italy. I use various techniques, but mostly Oil on canvas. I decided several years ago that I will not try to reach the reality; I am trying to put the colors and shapes as I view them; sometimes, the place is the exactly the same spot, but the artworks are so different." - Dita Jacobovitz
