Miniatures to Comics: Stories from India  
Monday-Friday, July 20-24 for children ages 7-9.
Monday-Friday, July 27-31 for children ages 10-12.

Visual storytelling, in many formats, has been an important way to share the epic stories of India for hundreds of years.  Children will look at the 18th century Indian miniature paintings in the Carlos collection, a “kavad” or storytelling box from northwest India, and Indian comic books from Amar Chitra Katha, Campfire Graphic Novels, and Liquid Comics, before writing and illustrating their own comic book adventure.

Other camps on other topics and other dates are also available.
