Our age ranges are designed to accommodate each child’s developmental level, and best nurture the relationships formed within each group of children. For the majority of our camps, children are elementary school aged.
Spring Break Workshops
Real Artists. Real Fun.
Philbrook offers a unique opportunity for children ages 5-12 to work with acclaimed working local and regional artists from a variety of fields and disciplines.

Why are the age ranges for each workshop different?
My schedule is tricky. Is there childcare available before and after a workshop?
Yes! We offer before care from 7:45-9:00, and aftercare from 4:00-5:30pm. You may sign up for either, or both, when you register for a workshop.
Do I need to send a snack for my child?
Each workshop includes a snack midway through the day. Philbrook provides goldfish or pretzels for snack. However, caregivers are welcome to send their child with a different snack.
Should I provide a lunch for my child?
Since our workshops last all day, each child should make sure that they bring their lunch. Lunches should be stable at room temperature, and not require any heating or refrigeration. Also, please note that all Philbrook camps and workshops are peanut-free.
Someone besides my child’s immediate caregiver will be picking up my child. Is there anything I need to do?
Please include their names and relation in the online registration form. If you would like to add names to your designated pick-up list, please email Evan Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My child needs to take medicine during the day. How does that work?
Please bring any medication in a plastic bag, labeled with a name. All medication will be stored in a locked safe. Please note, we do not have a nurse on site to administer medication.

I am an Oklahoman artist/teacher under the moniker “The New Honey Shade” who is involved more or less in all things audio-‐visual: recording and producing music, running an experimental music label (Unknown Tone Records), mastering and engineering, sound for films (OST), album cover design, directing videos, film photography, and mix media formats such as collage and sound art (Bio Sonification). With a deep love for antique ephemera, I have amassed a collection over the years of both 8mm and 16mm analog film reel to reels. The films are then used to create music videos for the artists that release music on the label I founded with my wife in late 2011. Still images have been taken from the film’s frames to aid in the additional artwork for the physical formats. Releasing over 60 full-‐length records from various artists spanning the globe over the last seven years, I’ve sought to seamlessly blend these vintage sights with sound into new cohesive themes.
