Art Camp, Session 1: Upcycled Art (PM, Ages 7-9)

Session 1 : Jun 11-15
Ages 7/9, PM
Teaching Artist: Lydia Cheshewalla

During this session campers will make art using materials that would otherwise be thrown away. Through the creation of small individual projects and large collaborative projects kids will have to opportunity to consider what it means to transform something useless into something useful. Throughout the week kids will use upcycled materials like toilet paper rolls, cans, plastic bottles, and lids in the creation of their works of art. This session is all about encouraging campers to be resourceful thinkers who can make something out of what could be perceived as nothing.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will experience various ways of accessing their creativity by using easily accessible, every day materials.

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:
1. We offer before and after care.
2. Lunch is optional and catered through our onsite restaurant.
3. We have a morning snack and afternoon snack built into the studio sessions.
4. We use the whole museum, so we will go outside when the weather permits: please pack sunscreen on bug spray.

Your day at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and thinking! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.
