Art Camp, Session 4: Art Garden (AM, Ages 5-6)

Jul 16, 9:00 AM

Session 4 : Jul 16-20
Ages 5/6, AM
Teaching Artist: Kara Bellavia

During this session campers will use their close looking skills to discover similarities between works of art in the museum and things they see in the gardens. Campers may find a leaf in the gardens that reminds them of a leaf in a work of art but they may also look at an abstract work of art and see similarities in the blurry reflection of a puddle. Time spent in the gardens and galleries will focus on open-ended questions that spark conversations. In the studios campers will take their discoveries and make art using a variety of materials.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will practice looking closely and build an appreciation for the details in a fun and engaging environment.

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.
