Teen In-Person Courses
RISD campus, summer only
Artistic exploration is one of the best ways for teens to build confidence in expressing themselves, learn to solve problems and think critically. Teens can maximize their summer by gaining a foundation in art and design fundamentals, experimenting with a new medium and building technical skills.

Summer teen in-person courses are held on RISD’s Main Campus in Providence, Rhode Island, with many taking advantage of resources including the RISD Museum and Nature Lab. Note: There is no residential/overnight option for these courses.
Our instructors are not only amazing teachers, but have successful artistic practices themselves. Each course is led by one instructor plus a teaching assistant.
Evaluation and feedback
Students receive feedback throughout each day of class. On the last day, instructors will meet briefly with each student to review their progress and performance during the week.
If you have any questions about whether your teen will thrive in in-person courses, please contact RISD CE: firstname.lastname@example.org or 401 454-6200.
