Creative adventures in a range of visual arts and design disciplines await adult students at RISD Continuing Education – from courses, lectures and workshops for personal enrichment and professional development, to focused certificate programs, to summer credit courses.

Young Artists

In the RISD Young Artist Program, kids shape their creativity and imagination, and teens develop their personal style as artists and designers. Year-round courses, school vacation camps and summer camps cover topics in 2D, 3D, and digital art and design. For more focused instruction, teens can enroll in one of 4 certificate programs, or attend the six-week summer Pre-College Program.
