How to Make a Family Portrait with Hanoch Piven


The remarkable Israeli artist, Hanoch Piven, guides you and your family to create family portraits from objects found in and around your house: bottle tops, buttons, stickers, old small toys, combs, hairpins, feathers, old computer parts, leaves, branches, and pebbles from the garden. There are two rules: (1) None of the usual art project material (e.g., pipe cleaners) please! (2) Have fun!
