For pupils in Agaf Shachar, the Israel Ministry of Education Educational Welfare Division. The program is a collaborative effort of Agaf Schahar and the Israel Museum Youth Wing for Art Education.

The program targets pupils with exceptional learning skills and behavior who hail from socio-economically challenged neighborhoods in Jerusalem located far from cultural and educational centers. The object of the program is to create an opportunity which provides participants optimal exposure to unique fields of content. Experiencing art education at a high professional level in the Museum facilitates acquisition of knowledge, creative skill and greater awareness of the world of art. This provides pupils with the opportunity to discover new worlds which may become central to their future lives.
