Printmaking at the Carlos Museum in Atlanta

Jack and I went to visit family in Atlanta last month and we were able to find time to get out and about in the city. In one adventure, we went to the Carlos Museum at Emory University. There was a great temporary exhibition of Tibetan mandalas, including a beautiful sand mandala created by a group of local monks. In the museum’s permanent collection are some lovely Mexican animal vessels and ocarinas, AND several patterned stamps. The Museum had different kid learning activity stations around the museum, including a basket of Speedball brayers carved into patterns and different colored ink pads. Jack had a blast inking up and rolling out the patterns, then matching his patterns to the Mexican stamps in the display case. An awesome activity that I’ll have to try at home sometime!
