Art Camp, Session 3: Camera Build (PM, Ages 10-12)

Session 3 : Jun 25-29
Ages 10/12, PM
Teaching Artist: Cheyenne Butcher

We will take the week to experiment with ways of taking pictures and build our own pinhole camera. This workshop will be all about creative problem solving and embracing experimentation while we use the museum and gardens for inspiration. We will practice finding new ways of looking at the world around us, while gaining the skills needed to take and process photos. By the end of the week you will have a functioning pinhole camera and the skills to keep looking at the world in new ways!

Learning Outcomes
Campers will build confidence and engage in new ways of thinking. Campers will create works of art that demonstrate an understanding of processes, creative-thinking, and techniques.

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.
