Come ready to be amazed at what a powerful and versatile medium simple paper can be, whether the paper is for "hosting" the art or becomes the art itself, in both two and three dimensions.

Description

Summertime is filled with adventures. The sun is warmer. The days are longer. We have time to explore the outdoors with a walk in the woods, a swim by the sea, or maybe a trip to a faraway land. We all have our favorite summer stories, and as the season approaches we also dream of the stories to come. Summer's Tale will turn those stories of the past and future into a beautifully illustrated, colorful and unique book. We'll look at examples of other artists' books: children's books, pop-ups, books with movable parts, accordion fold-out books, or even "choose your own adventure" mysteries. It's up to you to make the style of book that fits your story. You'll learn the basics of drawing, illustrating and painting, as well as how to make pop-ups, movable parts books, accordion fold-outs, and the skills needed to put your books together. And by the end of the week, you'll have a personalized book telling your tales of Summer.

Description

Explore storytelling through the visual and performing arts! Each day of camp, you'll venture out of the classroom to seek inspiration and backdrops for your own imaginative stories. In the RISD Museum you'll learn how painters, sculptors and designers use their art to tell tales. In the Nature Lab you'll sketch animals like clever foxes and greedy pigs that have been featured in stories from around the globe. You'll look through the RISD Library's collection of pop-up books, illustrations and cartoons. And, right at RISD's doorstep, you'll draw the historic architecture and bridges of Providence's riverfront. After each adventure, you'll return to the classroom to create your own stories, through bookmaking, puppet-making, mask-making and more!
