Young creators engage in the fascinating world of light reflection and pattern making! Multi-disciplinary artist Sierra Kramer will guide campers through hands-on activities, where they will explore how light interacts with different surfaces to create mesmerizing patterns, crafting one-of-a-kind kaleidoscopes that blend symmetry and luminosity in an immersive exploration of art and science.

About the Teaching Artist: Sierra Kramer
Sierra Kramer (she/they) is a queer, multidisciplinary artist based on Mvskoke (Muscogee [Creek]) Nation Reservation. They seek an understanding of this privilege and give thanks daily for the opportunity to be in connection with these lands. They work predominantly in digital drawing and painting and are currently exploring laser cutting and engraving. Sierra is best known for their art-based early childhood program, Honeybee Schoolhouse, located near Downtown Tulsa. Sierra’s work examines ideas of generational healing, matriarchal brilliance, body-love and body-loathing, and our belonging in the (un)natural world. Their work can be viewed as diaristic as it is based on personal experience.

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. All campers are required to be toilet trained and able to use the toilet without adult assistance.
  3. We offer Before and After-Care.*
  4. All-Day campers need to bring a peanut-free lunch from home.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
