Ein Gedi.

Anat Ein Gedi is known amongst her close community as the “Painting Kindergarten Teacher.” She is currently studying for her PhD in Education, focusing on Integrating Arts at kindergartens. She is working as a kindergarten teacher in the past 16 years, combining her work as an educator with her passion for arts.

“I’ve been drawn to the world of arts ever since I can remember myself. I wanted to paint, but always felt like something was holding me back. I was afraid and insecure in letting my passion out. It wasn’t until recently when I decided to let the artist in me out in public,” Ein Gedi tells Israelife. “Opening a door for art completely changed my life. From being a very “down to earth” person, I became more spiritual and imaginative. My artistic style is very naïve. I paint from the unconscious, according to what I feel. I paint from the soul.”

Ein Gedi is currently presenting her pieces in several group exhibitions in Israel and abroad. She also donates her artwork to various non-profit organizations.
