Courses on the RISD Campus

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!

Camps at the RISD Farm
Ages 6-12
Full-day camps at Tillinghast Farm in Barrington merge the creativity of an art workshop with the amusement of summer camp. Young artists explore a range of art topics and techniques and find creative inspiration with visits to the beach, the woods and the rolling green hills.
