2 Weeks of Camp left…Daka Tishim Specials!

“My daughters’ experience at Avigayle’s summer camp was about so much more than the fantastic artwork they made. While I had simply hoped to keep them busy, with some enrichment thrown in as an added bonus, the experience instead resulted in a priceless boost to their self-esteem. Avigayle succeeds, without exception, in getting to know each camper personally, and in creating the kind of stimulating yet supportive environment that enables children to create without pressure, express themselves without embarrassment, and develop crucial interpersonal skills. I highly recommend Open Studio camps to parents of all kinds of children, with all sorts of natures and challenges. A rare and truly positive opportunity.” -Marla Goldfinger (Efrat)

Our Summer Camp Schedule is here!

A balance of creative choice and art explorations & and professional facilitation, empower and encourage children’s creative identities. At the Open Studio, each artist decides on his or her medium, project, stopping point. This philosophy is extended to several site visits. Multiple age groupings encourage a flow of ideas and limitless possibilities. Programs are taught by master educator and artist, Avigayle Adler, (MA Ed) and her team in Hebrew & English.

“Avigayle’s “Monster camp” empowered my children to see themselves as artists, and they basked in the glory of their monster creations. With foresight and creativity, Avigayle fashioned a program that encompassed many forms of art and allowed for valuable self-expression. My six-year-old and four-year-old sons had a great time and grew immensely from the experience. It is apparent how much Avigayle enjoys the children and how skilled she is at understanding who each one is–his/her spirit, and what makes him/her sing inside. Send your child to Avigayle: you will be so glad that you did.” 
-Ruth Ebenstein, mother of three, Jerusalem
