Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

MTA’s robust elective program features a popular graphic design class, taught by Leah Korach, a multi-disciplinary artist. For the past few weeks, her 10th and 11th grade classes created beautiful, custom Seder plates. This process began with a digital design that was later transferred onto the seder plate. The design was made using several different online tools, and once completed, they were printed with a Cricut so that the design could be painted on the plate. The stencil design was placed on top of the plate, then peeled off layer by layer as the students painted it. The last step in the process was firing the seder plates in the kiln.

This unique project allowed the boys to express their artistic creativity while utilizing the concepts learned in the context of their graphic design class. The project took six weeks from start to finish, and around 38 plates were created. This was the first time Mrs. Korach did this project, and she was really impressed with the way the talmidim took ownership over their plates, and really enjoyed the process.

The boys felt that the designing of the Seder plates was the most challenging part, as they did not fully realize the connection between the design and the end result. The painting, though tedious, was really relaxing and enjoyable. By the time they were done, there were several that looked like they were made by professionals.
