The event was timed to coincide with the arrival of warmer weather. It has inspired countless bike rides, safety inspections, commuter challenges, ribbon-cuttings, “share the road” promotions, and other varied celebrations of bicycling in communities across the nation”.

Mission:

The Center for Creative Education’s mission is to empower our students to grow academically, creatively and socially through arts-based education.

 

“Nikk” by Isabel Saad

 

Vision:

CCE envisions a world where each child has the opportunity to learn and grow in the way that meets their needs, and allows them to reach their full potential as citizens and contributors to society.

 

“Untitled” by Bethany Stinnett

 

History:

In the early 1990’s a group of leaders at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach became concerned about the trend to cut back on arts education in schools. Visual arts, dance and music programs were being slashed to balance budgets. The Council commissioned a study, funded in part by the MacArthur Foundation and the Chastain Charitable Foundation, to find a way to help fill the void.

 

“Untitled” by Sarah Sherman

 

In 1994 that county-wide study led to the creation of the nonprofit, Center for Creative Education. Its mission was to train teachers how to bring the arts back into schools, by integrating art into other classroom studies. This “Arts Integration” is still the basis for what we do today. For more than two decades CCE has been partnering with schools and after-school sites in Palm Beach County to provide quality, creative educational opportunities, using the arts as the foundation.

 

“Shoes” by Isabel Saad

 

 

The Center:

Surprisingly, the Center for Creative Education’s first office was an un-used exam room at Good Samaritan Hospital. These creative accommodations were courtesy of the chairman of the committee that created CCE, Dr. Robert Brodner, a neurosurgeon who practices at the hospital.

Today, thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have our own beautiful Center in Northwood Village in West Palm Beach. The building was a roller rink back in the 1950’s and 60’s, so it is once again a place to delight children! The Center features an art gallery, classrooms, meeting rooms and is home to our administrative offices. Construction is currently underway on two art studios

“TerraScapes” by Susan Oakes

 

Susan Oakes tells The Rickie Report, ” In my work and teaching I blur the borders between photography, painting, and digital illustration and reveal that art and technology are not antagonistic, but can coexist and be used to enhance each other in new and exciting ways. Although my art uses computer hardware and software, it is not the result of anything “automatic”, and is developed from my original photography. There is no “formula” or mechanized process… no two pieces are done in exactly the same way. In my collage pieces, I create composites of several photos, and sometimes vector illustrations as well, using layering, painting, blending and masking to achieve a certain look. I begin with the human form and relate it to elements in the natural world, such as water, plant life, or landscapes. The viewer’s eye is drawn around the piece to discover the individual elements and how they coalesce to form the whole”.

 

 

“Aqua Vista” by Susan Oakes

 

 

Susan is a freelance graphic artist and instructor who draws from a diverse background of psychology (B.A.), business (management), and art and technology, (teaching at Briarcliffe College in NY, as well as Palm Beach State College and the School District of Palm Beach County in addition to many private students).  Her professional affiliations include: Broward Artists Guild, Lighthouse ArtCenter Artist’s Guild, Artists of Palm Beach County, Kelby One (Formerly known as National Association on of Photoshop Professionals) and Seybold Seminars Digital Design, San Francisco.

 

 

“Withered Palm” by Susan Oakes

 

 

Susan’s artwork has been seen in juried art exhibits throughout the State of Florida as well as in New York and Maryland.  She has been a Featured Artist at numerous galleries in Southeast Florida, along with other SOLO exhibitions.  Susan has been recognized with multiple awards for her innovative artistry, in addition to exhibits on-line (Art Ascent Magazine, June, 2013 and Light Space and Time www.lightspacetime.com)

 


Susan shares, “Having never been a person with merely one goal, one purpose, I’ve traveled a multifaceted educational and vocational road which continues to enlighten and reveal lifelong purpose. I aim to show that art
and technology are not antagonistic, but can coexist and should be used to enhance each other in new and
exciting ways. Working in traditional media as well as digitally, I demonstrate that computer hardware and software are artistic tools, not unlike a paintbrush or piece of charcoal, and can be used to expand
the artist’s vision”.

Waze, a GPS-based geographical navigation application program for smartphones provides turn-by-turn information and user-submitted travel times and route details.  The mobile telephone network Waze Ltd., which was founded in 2008 in Israel by Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai and Amir Shiner, and is now available in over 100 countries, was acquired by Google. (en.wikipidea.org)

 

The exhibit, from Israel’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Space, displays 47 photographs highlighting groundbreaking discoveries in agriculture, medicine, robotics, computerization, archeology, space, mathematics and social sciences. Examples include the development of Waze, the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app; innovative treatments for Parkinson’s disease; and the essential office gadget, the USB flash drive.

Mazor Robotics Guidance Systems enables surgeons to conduct spine and brain procedures in a precise manner in the United States and throughout the world. (www.mazorrobotics.com)

 

 

The photography was supplied by the Israeli government and originally displayed at Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport in Israel. For the U.S. debut, the exhibit space was donated by Palm Beach Outlets and curated by Ilene Gruber Adams.  “It’s an incredible honor to curate such an important exhibition for the Jewish Federation. Scientific research serves as a bridge between cultures and nations. I look forward to seeing the positive reaction of the community,” added Adams.

 

 

 

“SEEDLESS GRAPES”

Seedless grapes are generally preferred by consumers for fresh consumption. The development of new seedless selections has been recognized as a key factor in breeding programs throughout the world. Israel’s Volcani Center is actively involved in breeding seedless grapes. Special emphasis is given to the time of ripening, firmness, high sugar content, special aromas, loose and uniform bunches, natural big berries, good shelf life and reduced labor costs world wide.  (www.ishs.org)

 

 

 

“This dynamic, international exhibit offers residents and visitors the opportunity to form deeper connections to Israel through visual arts and learning about prolific scientific achievements. We are thrilled to bring this thought-provoking exhibition to the community and showcase some of the amazing inventions that have come from Israel,” said Bar Sananes, Jewish Federation’s Israeli emissary.

LEORA STEWART KLAYMER

 

“Virgin Bride” by Leora Stewart Klaymer

 

Leora, born in Jerusalem, has taught in Philadelphia, New York and right here in South Florida.  She is a fiber artist and her work has been shown extensively world-wide.” My Fiber constructions are based on my observations of Nature and are a metaphor for the cycles of growth in life and in the natural world – landscapes, seascapes, cell structures, organic forms built with different fibers, along with beads, feathers, coral shards using a variety of textile techniques to create these three dimensional abstracted, structures” Leora explains.

 

JUDY  EISINGER

“Popsicle Flowers” by Judy Eisinger

 

Judy Eisinger, a graphic designer and painter exhibiting colorful paintings created using both tradition painting methods and digital art. Born in Budapest, Hungary, and escaping that communist country in 1956, Judy moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where she began painting at an early age and, at 13, took first place for the design of the City Holiday Card. Judy studied fine art at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cooper School of Art, which led to a four-year scholarship to Kent State University. After graduating with honors, Judy began her painting career by showing her colorful paintings at the Shaker Heights Artist’s Cooperative Gallery. Her work soon became sought after and now hangs in private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Israel.  She and her family moved to Israel where Judy designed greeting cards for LION Printing in Tel Aviv.  She has illustrated a children’s book, taught graphic design as an Adjunct Professor at Palm Beach Community College and is the owner and creative lead of Yudit Design (yudit.com)

 

 

LINDA  BEHAR

“Peace Labyrinth” by Linda Behar and Raheleh T. Filsoofi

 

Linda Behar’s current work explores a new approach to feminist concepts that are being explored by many artists: the idea of separating personal identity from the body, and digitally objectifying the female figure. Her work combines laser cutting with traditional printmaking techniques, specifically woodblock printing. Her work here, “Peace Labyrinth”, endeavors to promote peace and tolerance through the discovery of what we hold in common. The artists, Linda Behar, who is of Jewish heritage and Raheleh T. Filsoofi, who is of Iranian heritage, intend to bring diverse communities together in conversation and to send a message of tolerance and acceptance throughout the world.

 

DINAH KNAPP

 

 Collage by Dina Knapp

 

Dina Knapp, is known for making wearable art an art form. Her history and memory series compress history and culture through a layering of objects and images incorporating nostalgic postcards, painting, crochet, vintage fabrics, found objects and tourist souvenirs.  Born in Cyprus and raised in Israel and New York City by Holocaust survivors, Dina died this past October, at 69, of cancer.
