Wild Kids Animation Studio

 - is a unique Jerusalem-based education project, where kids at the age from 6 till 18 years old create animated films

  • We combine continuous and open-end development for each individual, based on age psychology and the methodology of interdisciplinary creative development (Animation Pedagogy*).

  • The Studio aim is to encourage personal growth through animation, fine arts, and engagement in artistic projects and exhibitions as a mean of expression and socialization.

  • WILD KIDS inspires breakthrough in kids’ perception of the world to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

  • We foster relationships among children, professional artists, parents and educators from different social backgrounds, religions and communities. 

  • Our OBJECTIVE is provide the creative space for children’s expression and dialogue.  

The team at Wild Kids Animation Studio consists of professional artists and educators who provide instruction in Hebrew, English and Russian.   

In addition to our courses and consulting, the Studio lends its working platform to emerging artists as well as other creative individuals, regardless of previous experience and specialization.

*Animation pedagogy was - developed in the last decades of the 20th century by Yuri and Lina Krasny, and became the point of departure point in the formation Studio. The multicultural reality of Jerusalem fostered further refinement of the concept, turning Wild Kids Studio into a dynamic creative laboratory open to all social groups.
