Course Details

Monday - Friday, Jul 16 - 20 | 9am-4pm
ages 6-12 | Tillinghast Farm | 2018/SE-CAMP-0542 ( Class is Full )
5 sessions | 35 contact hours | tuition $490


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

If you can redo, remix and refry, why can't you re-art? Common found objects become the foundation materials for artmaking in this multimedia extravaganza. Combined with traditional artists' materials used in uncommon ways, students reimagine the world around them through 3D construction, printmaking, collage and more. The RISD campus and its unique assets like the Museum and Nature Lab become an inspiration as students record their ideas, discoveries and observations.

Description

At the scenic Tillinghast Place studio classroom students will explore a variety of techniques to apply printing ink to textiles and fabrics. Processes include: designing a simple motif on a Soft-Kut block that can printed as a repeat pattern; stamp printing with found objects; and stencil cutting and printing with a stencil brush. Finally, students explore screenprinting, first using adhesive stencils, and then using drawing fluid and screen filler. With this range of techniques in their toolboxes, students create a final design to be printed on a T-shirt.

Applies to: AT, Y2

Description

Join us as we explore different ecosystems, from the hidden treasures of Narragansett Bay to the harsher, more forbidding environment of a typical desert. Using these "mini universes" as a starting point, young artists investigate a variety of art forms -- including painting, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media -- and find endless opportunities for exploration, inspiration and discovery. First, students uncover how water and wetlands, fish and birds, seaweed and beach grass interact to support the living, breathing universe of Narragansett Bay. Next, they explore what wild creatures live there and imagine what types of wacky creatures would live in this environment. Projects encourage artistic growth along with an increasing sensitivity to the world around us.
