Tillinghast Place, summer only
RISD Art Camp is a week-long option for students 6–8 and 9–12 years old. Each day at camp, students celebrate their creative strengths while developing new skills to apply during individual and group projects. Campers build their confidence, make new friends, and create beyond their expectations. RISD Art Camp is surprising, fun, carefully planned, and artfully coordinated.
With a special focus on collaborative thinking and artmaking, each group experiences art through playful exploration. In the mornings, students spend time in a guided art lesson that highlights specific media across 2D and 3D options. Students will not be sitting at desks all day: Campers stay inspired during nature walks on the beach and in the woods, and the daily schedule includes plenty of time for recreational activities in the outdoor green areas. Each Friday during the program, families are invited to join an art celebration before collecting their student’s work to bring home.
