Kids and teens attend RISD CE courses to grow creatively as they develop their artistic abilities. Led by outstanding visual artists, designers and educators, these programs journey into the artistic process where the emphasis is on thinking, designing, communicating and creating.
Kids ages 6-12 build self-confidence as they develop a strong foundation of creative and technical skills. Teens ages 13-17 use art as a means for creative self-expression, increasing their skill level as well as their maturity. For both age groups, these programs introduce students to notable artists and their work, and help foster each student’s creative, social and intellectual development.
RISD’s Advanced Program for High School Students is an intensive, collegiate-level program for students completing grades 9-12. This immersive online experience is designed for students who are interested in pursuing art and design in college.
