Art Camp: Ages 9-11
Art Camp: Session 1
Art Camp: Audio Adventures (Ages 9-11), PM
Add After-Care for $30 per child, per week (4-5:30pm)
Join multimedia artist Mark Kuykendall in a week-long adventure combining experimental sound exploration with out-of-this-world collaged landscapes. Working with Mark’s travelling sound studio, campers will build a multi-layered collaborative soundscape as a backdrop to large-scale collage landscapes. Campers will explore and experiment with sound through collage, sculpture and performance. This open-ended studio experience will allow for each camper to build confidence in their own art as they work individually and collaboratively throughout the week.
About the Teaching Artist: Mark Kuykendall
Mark D. Kuykendall is an Oklahoman artist/teacher (under the moniker “The New Honey Shade”) who is involved in all things audio-visual: recording and producing music, running an experimental music label (Unknown Tone Records), mastering and engineering, sound for films (OST), album cover design, directing videos, film photography, and mixed-media formats such as collage and sound art (Bio Sonification). With a deep love for antique ephemera, Kuykendall has amassed a collection of both 8mm and 16mm analog film reel-to-reels. These films are then used to create music videos for the artists that release music on the label Kuykendall founded with his wife in late 2011. Still images have been taken from the film’s frames to aid in the additional artwork for the physical formats. Releasing over 60 full-length records from various artists spanning the globe over the last seven years, Kuykendall seeks to seamlessly blend these vintage sights with sound into new cohesive themes.
What to Expect
A day starts in our studios, but we quickly use the whole museum: art, gardens, etc. to explore what it means to be a creative thinker and maker. Our workshops are geared towards getting messy, working together and providing space for every child in the studio.

During Art Camp, we hope to be able to make discoveries and see things in a new way, all before lunch. New this summer, we will have a space dedicated to collaborative and group work that we will use in unexpected and new ways geared towards each of the weekly sessions.
Here are a few things to know:
- We offer before and after care.
- Lunch is optional and catered through our onsite restaurant, and available for purchase at Monday morning check-in.
- We have a morning snack and afternoon snack built into the studio sessions.
- We use the whole museum, so we will go outside when the weather permits: please pack sunscreen and bug spray.
Your day at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and thinking! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.
