Description

Color is one of the most powerful -- and complex -- tools at the artist's disposal. Bridging the divide between color theory and color practice, this studio course distills the essentials of color mechanics into workable studies and projects. Students explore color through creative exercises using collage and paint to understand color and how to use it effectively. Explorations of the role of light, the psychological impact of color, and how such factors as hue, value and intensity affect design are integral to the learning. Slide-illustrated presentations address the historical background of the use of color. Through the process of experiencing the interface of color theory and color application, guidelines toward developing a personal palette are discussed. Mastery of color is essential in the work of artists, illustrators, craftspeople and designers, making this course an ideal starting point. Please note that in addition to the lab fee, you can expect to have to buy additional supplies for this course. We try to keep this cost under $100, but for specialized courses (jewelry, wood, metals) this may be higher.

Applies to: AN-R, GR-R, ID-R, IT-R, NS-R, PG-R, PM-R, PS-R

Description

Have you ever wanted to design, create, sculpt, sketch and paint something -- just for fun? Well, in this crash course through the world of drawing, painting and sculpting, you can -- and still learn something along the way. Daily trips around the RISD campus help inspire, but we leave planning and tedious journaling behind to simply "roll up our sleeves" and create! "Happy accidents" and "Eureka moments" become the driving force down this road of fanciful undertakings. Out-of-this-world design projects like bumpy boulder bowls, movable self-portraits, far-out fantastical flowers, and even monstrously misshapen grotesque clay heads are sure to make you think again about what you know about art and design!

Description

There really are dragons in the RISD Museum and bears in the Nature Lab, but is there a river troll living in Waterplace Park? In this camp, students set out to find the creatures 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. Our 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. Perhaps we may even find that river troll!
