Art Camp, Session 4: Temporary Art (PM, Ages 7-9)

Jul 16, 1:00 PM

Session 4 : Jul 16-20
Ages 7/9, PM
Teaching Artist: Lydia Cheshewalla

During this session campers will explore creating art that is temporary. Temporary or ephemeral art is fleeting and only lasts for a very short time. Experimenting with making art that isn’t intended to last forever encourages flexibility and risk taking because it doesn’t have to be perfect. During the week campers will go on nature walks, practice observation exercises, and engage in free play. There will be the opportunity to make both individual and collaborative works of art.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will experience various ways of accessing their creativity by using easily accessible, every day materials.

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.
