Art Camp, Session 4: Thinking Abstract (PM, Ages 5-6)

Jul 16, 1:00 PM

Session 4 : Jul 16-20
Ages 5/6, PM
Teaching Artist: Ylena Summerfield

During this session campers will explore thinking in abstract ways and making works or art that are unexpected. During the week campers will explore the Philbrook gardens and galleries, and experiment with various ways of painting. Each day kids will have the chance to engage in a chance to make art in an open-ended and fun environment.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will develop their ability to think creatively, experiment with various art supplies, and explore how artists think and work today.

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.
