Wild Kids Animation Studio is an art school founded in 2010 in Jerusalem. Today, it also operates in Sarigim.  

The Studio aspires is to encourage personal growth through animation and fine arts, fostering relationships between professional artists, children, parents, educators, and broad public. With animation art at its core, the Studio provides a variety of courses for children of all ages, as well as for students, educators and emerging adult artists. 

Methodology of the interdisciplinary creative development ('animation pedagogy'), developed in the last decades of the 20th century by Yuri and Lina Krasny, became the departure point in formation of the Studio's concept. However, the multicultural reality of Jerusalem participated in further definition of the concept, turning Wild Kids Studio into a dynamic creative laboratory open for any social groups. 

 

The Studio aims at continuous and individualized open-end development of each participant, engaging in various artistic projects, festivals and exhibitions as a mean of expression and socialization. It specializes in stopmotion animation, providing the necessary facilities for engagement with "live" materials (paper, sand, clay, found objects, ready-made etc.) according to the age psychology and artistic tasks of the participants.


The team of Wild Kids Animation Studio consists of professional artists and educators providing instruction in Hebrew, English and Russian. Apart of the courses and consulting, the Studio lends its working platform for emerging specialists from art and educational academies, as well as for any other creative individuals, regardless of previous experience and specialization.
