Art Camps at Open Studio

“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!“



Shtilim (ages 4-6)

Experiential beginners creative space based around weekly themes with time to explore, relax and enjoy the process.

Anafim (ages 6-10)

A lot of free choice and creative inspiration. Projects are based around weekly themes and medium. Our afternoon Tzaharon program gives time for campers to spend more in-depth time on a specific project (of their choice) or try a variety of projects such as painting, jewelry making, sculpture, etc.

Nitzanim (ages 11-15)

Our famous “Artists as Mentors” Program where campers work alongside professional artists in their studios. Campers will work side by side in small groups with mentor artisans in a specific field. This track will challenge, inspire and build self-confidence in your teens and give them expertise in that specific area.

Campers are responsible for getting to the artists studios on their own.

CITs Counselor-In-Training Internship

Former Open Studio Campers, now aged 12-15 are invited to come back and join us as assistant counselors in our Shtilim and Anafim programs. CIT’s serve as a big brother or sister to the campers and are an extra set of hands for the counselors during our short day program 8:30-1:30. After that they are invited to stay on and pursue their own art projects in our Open-Studio during Tzaharon hours (1:30-3:30). Cost per week: 200nis, We only have a few spots for CITs per week. Those interested need to email with their experience at the Open Studio, babysitting, and/or in other art courses, and the weeks they are available. CITs are invited to join camp by the camp director and applying does not guarantee a placement.


Avigayle Adler  – MA, ED Founder and Director of the Open Studio has been teaching arts and creativity for over 15 years in Israel and abroad. An avid papercutting, mosaics and glass artist, she loves the challenge of bringing out the inner artist in every person she meets.

“The Open Studio is made up of far more than crafts; with out realizing it, children leave with values, a love of art and creation and a commitment to the greater community with an understanding of the city they live in…” (Deena Glickman, Katamon)
