Deadline extended: Enter by December 1 for a chance see your work on the cover of the spring course brochure.

What does the process of making look like to you? We’re dedicating our Spring 2019 brochure to “Makers + Making”—to the people who dedicate their time, talent and energy to creating works of art and the process by which they do so—and we’re looking to feature a student photograph on next term’s brochure cover. The Instagrammer with our favorite photo will see their work in print and receive a gift card good toward any RISD|CE course.
