Kids and teens attend RISD Young Artist courses to grow creatively as they develop their artistic abilities. Led by outstanding visual artists, designers and educators, these courses journey into the artistic process where the emphasis is on thinking, designing, communicating and creating.
Children ages 6-12 build self-confidence as they develop a strong foundation of creative and technical skills. Teens ages 13-17 use art as a means for creative self-expression, increasing their skill level as well as their maturity. For both age groups, RISD’s Young Artist Program exposes students to notable artists and their work, and helps foster each student’s creative, social and intellectual development.
