About the Teaching Artist: Aunj Braggs
Aunj is a Painter, Muralist, and Mixed Media Artist based in Tulsa, OK. Her work primarily centers around her lived experiences, spirituality, and self-preservation. Much inspiration is drawn from the lives of her loved ones, introspective contemplation, and the human condition. Aunj graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2018 and early in her career she exhibited at Oklahoma University, IAO Gallery, and her home University in Edmond. After her move back to Tulsa in 2019, she joined an all Black Artist’s collective called Black Moon. Through her involvement with the collective, she has participated in group shows at TAC Gallery, Living Arts, Gilcrease Museum, and Philbrook Museum of Art. At Philbrook, Aunj was featured as the Lead Artist in the creation of the temporary 60-foot mural installation, “Time Travel” and her work, “Inseparable,” was featured on the May 2021 cover of Tulsa People Magazine. In March 2022, she resigned from her role within the collective and has since been featured as a muralist for the Sunny Dayz Mural Festival, exhibited work at MAINSITE in Norman, been commissioned for a 75 foot mural, and is now serving as Program Chair and Development Co-Chair of the board for Sunny Dayz—an arts non-profit dedicated to serving women working in the arts. As her career reaches forward, she is staying actively invested within the arts community of Oklahoma and she is optimistic that the art scene will continue to be more diverse and inclusive in the future.

What to Expect
A day at Camp Philbrook 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 making space for every child’s ideas.

Here are a few things to know:

  1. This is a drop-off camp.
  2. We offer Before and After-Care.*
  3. All-Day campers need to bring a peanut-free lunch from home.
  4. We have pretzels or Goldfish crackers as morning snack and afternoon snack built into each camp session. Campers are welcome to bring their own peanut-free snack from home if they would like.
  5. We use the whole museum, which means we spend ample time outside when the weather permits. Please pack a water bottle daily and arrive wearing sunscreen and bug spray.
  6. Your days at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and fun! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.

*Before or After-Care
Before-Care or After-Care is offered for each week of Camp Philbrook for an additional $25 for Members and $30 for Not-Yet-Members per child.
