Jewish Ferndale provides a dynamic environment to increase the awareness of sense of community by its divergent members, providing a venue where people express their creativity, learn of each other's needs and cultures and promote understanding.

Art Studio color_lens

The Art Studio also provides a venue displaying the work of artists of all levels and backgrounds from the Detroit metropolitan area that would otherwise not have that opportunity for growth, visibility and support. Classes are geared to all ages and accomplishments with emphasis on those who cannot necessarily afford art lessons.
