RISD CE In-Person Summer Courses

Create in the Creative Capital This Summer

Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education will resume in-person, on-campus instruction this summer (2022) with select in-person courses on RISD’s campus in Providence, Rhode Island and youth full-day camps at Tillinghast Place in Barrington, Rhode Island.

Please note that RISD CE is no longer offering any in-person programming on RISD’s campus in Providence during the academic year (fall, winter and spring terms), but we are working to offer future in-person courses during the academic year at Tillinghast Place, Westerly Education Center and other off-campus locations.
