During this session campers will create three-dimensional sculptures and installations using recycled boxes and materials. The week will include individual and team projects that explore geometric shapes and there role in building something visually interesting and structurally sturdy. Campers will have to opportunity to be both engineers and artists! There will be a focus on building confidence in order to help kids think big while going beyond the flat sheet of paper while using interesting materials.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will build the confidence to express themselves in big three-dimensional ways.

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.
