About the Teaching Artist: Kindra Lockman
Kindra Lockman is a beading artist whose art is inspired by her Cherokee roots. She gives credit to her elder Ms. Drywater for teaching her the craft while she attended Sequoyah Indian High School. “I am inspired by each piece that I create. I am inspired when customers see my product and fall in love with the pieces I make. I am inspired to make gifts for my loved ones”
Her artwork represents the link she has to her culture, and by using different materials it represents the ability we all have to work well together as a society, to appreciate our differences, and to see what a beautiful outcome we can create!
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:
- This is a drop-off camp.
- We offer Before and After-Care.*
- All-Day campers need to bring a peanut-free lunch from home.
- 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.
- 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.
- Your days at Philbrook will be filled with creative energy and fun! Please make sure to dress for mess and outdoor exploration.
