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 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.
Children ages 6 to 12 are invited to join us for one-week full-day camps offered during school vacations in winter, spring and summer. Camps are held at RISD’s Tillinghast Place campus in Barrington, RI or on the RISD campus in Providence.
