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.

Kids (Ages 6-12)
