Teachers

Philbrook is committed to supporting educators across Tulsa, Oklahoma, and beyond. Through art and gardens, we hope to make a more creative and connected community and create space for new ideas, diverse perspectives, and social connection.

Young Artist Opportunity

Artists ages 4–18 can have their work in a Philbrook exhibition! The BIG Show, on display at Philbrook March 11–May 8, 2022, is a radically inclusive exhibition highlighting the creativity of young people across Tulsa and Oklahoma.

We need your help to make it happen! What will the young artists in your classroom create?
