What Home is Made Of
Hanoch Piven is a leading contemporary Israeli artist whose whimsical portraits tell stories with surprising depth and complexity. His work depicting prominent people, from Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs to Barack Obama and even Moses, is created using a wide array of seemingly random objects—but every object tells a story and carries meaning.
In this series, we invite you to see your home through new, inspiring, empowering lenses.

WHAT DO WE NEED?
Every day objects that you don't need anymore: old toys, CDs, broken glass frames, string, hair bands…anything!
Cardboard or foamcore as your canvas. (at least 11×17 in size works well)
Colored construction paper
Hot glue gun (or other multi-purpose glue)
ACT 1: Ready? Let's Create!
From the objects you've collected, select two objects:
Object #1 represents a strength or value of yours, something you are proud of.
Object #2 represents something in your home or family that inspires you, that gives you comfort
Once you're done selecting, gather together and share why you chose those objects.
As a family, create an image with objects that describes what your home is made of.
