Teen Online Courses

Craft your student story

Do you like to draw? Are you a storyteller, or maybe even an inventor and builder of things? Discover how creative problem-solving, collaboration and expression are at the heart of art and design. All of which can prepare you for your future goals—whether or not you’re considering a career in art and design.

When you join teen online classes at Rhode Island School of Design, outstanding artists, designers and educators will lead you toward inspiring career paths and creative problem-solving skills. You will meet online weekly (via Zoom) where you will connect with other teen makers.

Summer registration now open; courses start July 7
