Doing: Thinking - Classes for Children (Hebrew only)

The Doing-Thinking program for children focuses on creative thinking in the spirit of the Bauhaus School. Our workshops are guided by the philosophy of learning through doing, a pedagogical method that provides the children an opportunity to develop their skills by experimenting with various tools and materials and promoting agile, independent thought, self-confidence, and multidisciplinary perspective.

Olympus for Creators (Hebrew only)
Olympus is an innovative, out-of-this-world program for young artists who completed art, architecture, design, performance, and dance studies; people seeking a flexible, singular platform to develop, expand, and refine their creative work.
Our approach blends various tools, techniques, and vocabularies designed to expand your field of action and help you develop and refine your creative vision. We aim to create an innovative, creative learning experience, supporting creators in their journey to find and boldly pave their way in the world with curiosity, agility, and responsiveness. The pedagogical philosophy of the program is founded on equality, dialogue, and collaborative creation. We focus on valuable interactions, group studies, and experimental work, attentive to each participant’s individual tendencies and learning habits. There are no dull lectures or authoritarian, hierarchical reviews at Olympus.
Olympus features three main programs, each featuring a distinct learning method:
The Framework Program that focuses on perfecting working practices through meaningful, in-depth dialogue in a group of artists from different fields;
The Theme Program that highlights joint research and creation;
The Nuance Program offers an extraordinary personal learning adventure at home. These programs represent our mountain’s pinnacle, with two complementary programs across the ridge:
The Text Program polishes creators’ reading and writing skills;
The Nectar Program offers a series of weekly meetings with interesting multidisciplinary creatives.
Developed by a team of educators, architects, artists, curators, designers, and artisans inspired by the Bauhaus School, Olympus’ framework and content offer an excitingly experimental and diverse learning experience.
