ages 6-8 | RISD Campus | 2020/SE-CAMP-2056
5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $515 | lab fee $10


Description

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

Description

Many artists draw inspiration from objects found in nature -- not to mention the junk drawer! RISD's Tillinghast Place offers a treasure trove of objects, from cool rocks, shells and flotsam and jetsam on the beach to flowers and feathers in the fields. In this late-summer camp, students will comb the grounds of the farm and delve into the depths of their bedroom closets, toy boxes or junk drawers to collect treasures. Back in the studio, they’ll create innovative works of art that incorporate their found objects with traditional art materials and processes.
