Get stitchin’ with fabric artist Briana Hefley-Shepard and bring your mutant creatures or fantastical animal sketches to life in 3-D. Whether their imagination skews fluffy and fun or scaly and scary, campers will have a blast using fabrics, felt, and decorative baubles to bring their creatures to life. Campers will combine their imagination with their problem-solving skills as they troubleshoot how to bring their 2-D drawings to life!

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.
