Kids Vacation Camps
Kids ages 6 to 12 are invited to join us for one-week full-day camps offered during school vacations in winter and spring, as well as one- and two-week full-day camps in the summer. Camps are held at RISD’s Tillinghast Place campus in Barrington, RI or on the RISD campus in Providence.
Due to COVID-19, RISD CE has canceled all in-person classes for kids ages 6–12. Although our in-person classes are canceled this summer, we are offering some exciting new online courses for teens and adult students. We hope you consider joining us to stay connected, engaged and creating with RISD CE. Browse RISD CE Online Courses.
Camps at Tillinghast Place
(Summers, plus Winter and Spring School Vacations)
Full-day camps at Tillinghast Place in Barrington merge the creativity of an art workshop with the amusement of summer camp. Students explore a range of art topics and techniques and find creative inspiration with visits to the beach, the woods and the rolling green hills.
Camps on the RISD Campus
Kids in full-day camps find inspiration in almost every corner of campus, whether painting outdoors or getting their hands dirty in the studios. Students experience the wonders of taxidermy and 3D microscopes at the Nature Lab, the astonishing artwork at the RISD Museum, the collection of pop-up, art and illustration books at the Library, and more!
