About the Teaching Artist: Beth Henley
Elizabeth Henley is a painter and multimedia artist from Tulsa, Oklahoma. While living and working in Tulsa, she also attended several schools, including studying Interior Design at Oklahoma State University. After several color theory and art classes, she realized her main passion was creating artwork through visual art. She began displaying her work publicly in 2015, but then refocused her pursuits to finding space in her local art scene for artists of color, specifically Black Artists in the Tulsa area. This desire to see inclusion and diversity in art led her to found and create Black Moon in 2018, an all Black artist collective here in Tulsa focused on breaking standards, pushing innovation, and cultivating creativity among her local community. With the formation of Black Moon, Elizabeth and fellow artists have shown in several galleries and exhibitions throughout the Oklahoma area. Her goal is to grow and develop her skills as an artist, but to also show representation through diversity in her pieces.
Beth’s Artist Statement
I create art as a form of expression, communication, therapy, escape, and need. Currently, I am exploring themes of strength, afro-futurism, and femininity. A few years back, I had health complications and major surgery that made me stop and take note of what was truly important. I re-prioritized my pursuits, and decided to make creating art not just a passion, but a lifestyle.
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.
