Get muddy with artist Lydia Cheshewalla in this 2-week clay exploration extravaganza. Learn basic building skills, and discover out of the box ways of firing and finishing your clay creations! This workshop will introduce multiple firing methods, including Lydia’s specialty: smoke firing. The first week will introduce this fun and tactile medium and develop technical skills for building 3-dimensional work. During the second week, campers will experiment with a variety of finishing processes including cold finishing, glaze firing, and an unforgettable smoke firing.

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:
1. We offer before and after care.
2. Lunch is optional and catered through our onsite restaurant.
3. We have a morning snack and afternoon snack built into the studio sessions.
4. We use the whole museum, so we will go outside when the weather permits: please pack sunscreen on bug spray.

Your day at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and thinking! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.
