With the enchanted Tillinghast Place as their setting, young artists will use folklore to inform their own artmaking. What creatures dwell in the forest? How do they disguise themselves?

Artists will explore a variety of forest myths that feature fantastic figures such as the Green Man, zombies, bewitched beasts, trolls, fairies and gnomes. They will bring these ethereal beings alive through drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture and installation, with inspiration from illustrators Arthur Rackham and Jamie Wyeth, sculptor Deborah Butterfield and costume designer Julie Taymor.

5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $515 | lab fee $10


Description

Explore the rainforests of the world, from Brazil to Borneo, Australia to Southeast Asia, Costa Rica to Papua New Guinea! What creatures live there? How do they survive? Who uses camouflage? Who responds to sounds and colors? In this class artists will learn about indigenous animals and how they interact with their environments. They will also meet the people who coexist in these tropical spaces. How do they use natural materials to create art? How do they adapt to environmental changes? What inspires their traditional stories? Through drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media, students will create their own artistic interpretations of the jungle.

ages 6-8 | RISD Campus | 2020/SE-CAMP-0542
5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $515 | lab fee $10


Description

The universe is a wacky place full of actions and interactions with black holes, galaxy-eating collisions, asteroids, meteors and nebulas. Young artists/explorers will design and create their own constellations using the stars, name them, and develop a story or myth that supports their ideas. They then imagine and visualize what a planetary terrain looks like or what a parallel universe is comprised of. Students will envision these alternative worlds (including their colors, sounds, shapes and patterns) as two- and three-dimensional representations using a variety of materials. In the process, they'll build new skills in drawing, painting, collaging, printmaking and mixed media, adding up to an exciting out-of-this-world camp.

Description

In this course, students set out to find the animals of myth and legend living around the RISD campus, from the taxidermy and entomology (the study of BUGS, that is!) at the Nature Lab to the ancient art and artifacts at the RISD Museum. Young explorers use this treasure trove of information as inspiration for a variety of visual projects, building basic art and design skills as they visually document their travels and create the myths and legends of tomorrow.

Description

Join us for a creative journey through time where we explore ideas, art and artifacts from the past to design and create for the future. While on their expedition, students view artworks, objects and inventions from a variety of eras, places and cultures to gain inspiration for their own designs. Using a wide range of materials, projects entail art- and design-related challenges to develop creative thinking and problem solving.

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!
