Art Camp, Session 4: 21st Century Quilting (PM, Ages 10-12)

Jul 16, 1:00 PM

Session 4 : Jul 16-20
Ages 10/12, PM
Teaching Artist: Julianne Clark

Using the rotunda installation by Rachel Hayes as inspiration, campers will create various works of art using non-traditional materials such as plastics, metal, and found objects. Campers will explore the idea that quilt can be almost any group of materials that are connected together. They will gain insight into the history of quilting and fiber arts, and will view other works in the museum to inspire their own unique ideas. Campers will have the opportunity to make large creations that will be hung in innovative ways.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will experience new forms of art-making while practicing critical thinking skills.

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.
