“Expose your children to limitless possibilities, inspiration, and motivation, allowing them to imagine and to create their own worlds. For six years, The Open Studio has offered arts camps where children are inspired to learn and create in Jerusalem. Come join us where art is for everyone!“
SUMMER CAMP PROGRAM
SHTILIM – שתילים (AGES 4-6)
The Shtilim track will focus on exploring and discovering your child’s creative talents using all five senses and strengthening fine and gross motor skills through exciting art creations and group activities. The groups are small and well-supervised. We use high-quality, safe materials that allow the children to discover their inner artists, work together and have fun!
ANAFIM – ענפים (AGES 6-10)
The Anafim track will be a journey that explores the world around us. Children will encounter history, culture, nature, and craft utilizing professional materials and use them to express their creativity. Bilingual program with weekly trips.
NITZANIM – ניצנים (AGES 10-14)
In the Nitzanim track, participants will work side by side with mentor artisans in a specific field of art. This track will challenge, inspire and build self-confidence in your teens and give them expertise in that specific area.
Inside vs. Outside Time
Children in Shtilim and Anafim will have approximately one hour of lunch and free play time in a local park or outdoor space each day. Additionally, during our snack break (10am) counselors run fun games for campers to opt into and have a chance to run around outside. While we do particularly messy art projects (such as Tye-Dye & Paper Mache) outside, the rest of the time, we are inside a cool, air-conditioned space.
Each week, Anafim have a trip within Jerusalem that fits with that week’s theme. Some of our trips may include the Tisch Biblical Zoo, The Gottesman Aquarium, The Nature Museum, Bloomfield Science Museum, the YMCA, the Supreme Court of Israel and more.
