Kids Overview

(Ages 6-12)

Year-round, RISD CE’s Young Artist Program provides a strong grounding in the visual arts and encourages creative and personal growth through self-expression. Each course creates a dynamic environment where students build self-confidence along with a foundation of creative and technical skills. In the summer, young artists can enjoy our one-week day camps, or can choose from among dozens of individual courses in a wide variety of topics.

RISD Young Artists Kids Courses

Kids’ Courses

RISD CE’s engaging and educational courses for kids are offered on weekends during the school year — even during school vacation weeks and summer. Open-ended projects and lessons encourage confidence, and classes utilize RISD’s unique facilities, including studio space, the RISD Museum and the RISD Nature Lab.
