Week 1: Jul 23-27
Week 2: Jul 30- Aug 3
Ages 13/14, 9am - 4pm
Teaching Artist: Nelvin Howell, Teen Program Assistants
Spend two weeks experimenting and exploring art with Philbrook educators and local artists whose work varies in material, process, and image-making styles. Explore art-making through technology, sound, individually, and through group collaboration for small and large scaled projects. These workshops will be a combination of material-based and self-guided activities to support both the budding artist and to stretch other’s skillset, promote creative thinking and build an overall comfortability with art.
Mornings will focus on supporting group dynamics, include space for in-progress art discussions, and will have opportunities for off-site activities around Tulsa Arts District. Afternoons will provide time and space for youth to work alongside practicing artists to explore what art can be from collage, songwriting, technology, and wheat pasting.
Projects will be designed to allow for youth to work individually and to become more collaborative throughout the two-week session. Skills and ideas gained earlier in the session will be used in the final week to inspire open ended projects.
Youth Art Workshops will culminate into an exhibition that will showcase these ideas and projects at Philbrook Downtown on the final day of the workshop.
Youth will be able to create in imaginative ways through exploration, experimentation, and risk-taking through the art-making process. Youth will be able to work more effectively in teams that will create a collaborative cohort. Youth will create works of art that demonstrate an understanding of processes, creative-thinking, and techniques.
