Art Camp, Session 2: Let’s Sew (AM, Ages 7-9)

Jun 18, 9:00 AM

Session 2 : Jun 18-22
Ages 7/9, AM
Teaching Artist: Briana Hefley-Shepard

Every day we will start off learning something new together, by the end of the week you will have a work of art that shows off all that you learned and have working knowledge of many sewing techniques! We will also take full advantage of the museum and grounds and sew outside whenever possible. This exciting week will cover both hand and machine sewing techniques.

Learning Outcomes
Campers will engage in creative thinking and take risks while building specific skills related to fabric work. Campers will engage in playful experimentation.

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.
