ARTIS is an informal non-commercial association of volunteers that aims to promote education through art for Israeli children. The members of ARTIS share a belief that culture and art should become part of the personal development of every child.
The organization was established in 2007 as amuta ARTIS - The Israeli Society for Education through Art. It was registered by the Israeli Authority of Non-Profit Organizations and has been granted Clean Performance status. ARTIS has not enjoyed a support from the Government or any financial foundation.
While the Netherland Embassy supported the display of our first traveling exhibition, the major support for the most crucial needs came from the volunteers and the generous donations from ordinary individuals.
Volunteers: Ilana Barnea, Refael Bayer, Joseph Bedell, Aviva Ben Horin, Noga Boldor,Valentina Boyko, Vladimir Boyko, Jannis Cappon, Moshe Cenciper, Dory Cwikel, Michael Cwikel, Marina Dushenat, Idan Efroni, Tali Galsky, Nina Hakak, Assi Hirshfeld, Irena Hlabinin, Revital Lavy, Moshe Licht, Ora Margolin, Shoshana Michkin, Michal Mishar-Drozner, Keren Nizan, Orit Pinhas-Hamiel, Bella Savitsky, Kerstin Scharnweber, Yayel Shahar, Dafna Shamir, Pinhas Shamir, Alexander Shlesman, Nir Yona, Baruch Velan, Thierry Zaidner, Arnona Ziv, Abby Junge
Nowadays, ARTIS focuses on online activities introducing the website visitors to constantly updated learning exhibitions and exhibitions by the contemporary artists.
In December 2018, ARTIS has ceased its activities as the amuta and continues functioning as the informal non-commercial association of volunteers.
