We will build up a living creative studio and explore the interaction of different architectural epochs, try different art styles, techniques and materials, and create new extraordinary forms. We will learn how to turn one-dimension drawings into 3D, unite separate objects into a story, turn static figures into living characters and unusual scenes, and then produce remarkable architectural and theatrical performances.

Each programme offers:

  • Creative classes with educators for both the children and their parents

  • Sports and active games

  • Special parents’ programme

  • Walks around Dilijan and the surrounding nature-sanctuary

  • Unique tours around Armenia

  • Master-classes

  • Challenging quests and games of skill

  • Evening discussions and get-togethers just for kids
