Art Camp: Ages 5-6
Art Camp: Session 1
Art Camp: Superheroes/Superkid (Ages 5 & 6), PM
Add After-Care for $30 per child, per week (4-5:30pm)
What makes you “super”? Working with artist Ebony Iman Dallas, campers will explore identity, empowerment, and confidence through puppet making and performance. Campers will use a broad range of painting, drawing, and collage techniques to create a one-of-a-kind self-portrait puppet that transforms each child into their own kind of superhero. Then join us during our Friday celebration at a meet-and-greet of real-life superheroes.
About the Teaching Artist: Ebony Iman Dallas
Ebony Iman Dallas is an artist, writer, educator, and founder of Afrikanation Artists Organization (AAO).
Ebony received her BA Advertising and Arts degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, then went on to work at Carol H. Williams Advertising in Oakland, California as an art director.
She earned her MFA Design degree from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA. Her thesis titled “Painted Bridges” explored ways to unify diverse populations within the African diaspora through art and design for community activism. As a result, Afrikanation Artists Organization was founded as a non-profit, NGO based in Hargeisa, Somaliland and a 501(c)3 in the United States.
Her artwork was included in Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible” renovation of Urban Roots and she was a featured artist in the Romare Bearden Centennial Celebration in New York. She is a proud graduate of Leadership Arts and ArtistINC.

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:
- We offer before and after care.
- Lunch is optional and catered through our onsite restaurant, and available for purchase at Monday morning check-in.
- We have a morning snack and afternoon snack built into the studio sessions.
- We use the whole museum, so we will go outside when the weather permits: please pack sunscreen and bug spray.
Your day at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and thinking! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.
