Camp Carlos

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

For the past three years each summer I have been covering a series of camps for kids. Every two weeks I pick a theme and run with it and this summer is no different so to start out my four part series I picked art camps. The first one, Camp Carlos, is held for a number of weeks at the Michael C. Carlos Museum on the campus of Emory University. Each week, campers get a chance to explore different aspects of art and history as they create with paint and clay, make jewelry and other awesome projects. On Tuesday, campers were hard at work making Egyptian themed works of art inspired by Son of Sobek. Tune in tomorrow for more camps from around Atlanta!
