Draw, fold, build, sculpt. From small and intricate origami and, yes, even paper airplanes, to giant towering structures and papier mache sculptures, you'll explore all the things artists can do with or on paper -- including making paper from scratch! 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.

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!

Two words: paper and glue. Dive into the infinite possibilities this pairing can produce, armed with a pair of scissors and a willingness to experiment. See and experience how random connections can be made through line, shape, color and texture and unified through simple compositional structures. You'll leave class with multiple pieces, and begin to understand the immense potential of this very accessible way to make images.
