Carlos Children and Family Programs

Artful Stories

Public programs for children and families include Artful Stories for pre-school children. While surrounded by works of art from ancient Egypt, Greece, India, South America, and Africa, children and families hear tales from Greek mythology, African folktales, stories from ancient Egypt and more. After the stories, children explore one or two works in the galleries that relate to what they have heard, and then go to the studio for a hands-on activity. The program is free of charge and open to the Emory and the Atlanta community.


Workshops for children ages 8-12 provide opportunities for young people to work with gifted Atlanta artists in the galleries and in the studio in small group settings.  

Camp Carlos

During the summer, the Carlos Museum presents Camp Carlos, eight art-filled weeks of some of the city's most unique in-gallery and studio art experiences.

Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta Family Series

Carlos Museum's Reception Hall, children and their parents have the opportunity to hear live music from the classical repertoire and from around the world.  Family concerts are performed by members of the Emory Chamber Music Society and Emory's Quartet-in-Residence, the Vega String Quartet and featured such renowned musical guests as clarinetist Richard Stoltzman, and Christopher O'Reilly from National Public Radio's From the Top.
