A Moving Final Assignment

Noa RivkinWe would like for you to meet Noa, a student from CHW Nahalal Youth Village. Noa is a bright and creative young woman who loves art.

Noa knows that as the next generation, it is her responsibly to play a critical role in the future of the State of Israel.

For Noa’s final art project this year, she decided to create a piece of artwork that depicts the current situation in Israel. Therefore, Noa drew the scenery from the Jezreel Valley, part of the landscape of Israel and the area where Nahalal is situated, on a metal knife. The result: an extremely poignant piece of work.

 

Noa’s explanation for this piece of art is very moving. She explains, “The country, with its diverse and beautiful sceneries, all beauty and glorious, yet, a torn country, where the fight over land consumes every beautiful pasture and every hope for a peaceful life within it.” Noa continues by explaining, “The pastoral scenes express optimism and tranquility. However, the scenery on the knife expresses a sense of fear, danger, and discomfort.”
