Artists as diverse as Picasso, Anselm Kiefer and Kara Walker have made artists books - pieces of art in "book" format. You will use multi-media (printmaking, painting and more), special papers, and learn to make different bindings. Campers who attend all-day (combined with Teen Writing Workshop) will enjoy supervised lunch at Callanwolde. Although not a requirement, bookmakers who attend the Writing Workshop will have the opportunity for cross-disciplinary work, adding your writing into the books you make!


Callanwolde was built in 1920 by Charles Howard Candler, eldest son of The Coca-Cola Company founder Asa Griggs Candler. The estate is located in the Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The 12 acre estate contains a magnificent Tudor Revival style mansion, lush gardens, and several outer buildings.
Today, Callanwolde is owned by Dekalb County and is the home of Callanwolde Fine Arts Center. Callanwolde Fine Arts Center is a cultural community conservatory of the arts on a 12 acre campus. Callanwolde offers classes in the performing arts (music, music recording, dance, dance fitness), visual arts (painting/drawing, pottery, weaving/textiles, jewelry/metalsmithing, photography), writing, yoga, horticulture, culinary arts and more to students of all ages.

"Callanwolde relies on donations from our community to keep tuition low, purchase art supplies, and make improvements to our artistic facilities. Please make a donation to Callanwolde's annual fund today!"
