Camp Carlos, the summer program at the Michael C. Carlos Museum, still has some openings available in some of the summer camps offered at the museum.

Openings are available in:

Around the World with Indigo

July 14-18 (ages 10-12)

Textile artist Paula Vester will teach children the magic of dyeing with indigo, a plant that originated in India and spread to Europe, through an exploration of cultures around the world and through works of art in the Carlos Museum.
