Description

Have you ever looked at a painting that made you dizzy, or taken a second look and seen something completely different than what you had perceived seconds before? What about art that looks like a dream, or maybe even a nightmare? During this exciting summer camp, students will explore the visual trickery and techniques of Op Art, Futurism and Surrealism and their adherents, including Bridgett Riley, Umberto Bocciono and Eadweard Muybridge. They will venture on their own journey of optical enchantment as they experiment with painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media, incorporating illusionist techniques to create their own personal expression of visual magic.

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

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.

ages 13-17 | RISD Campus | 2020/SE-TEEN-2471
5 sessions | 15 contact hours | tuition $285 | lab fee $20


Description

Shepard Fairey, Andy Warhol, Banksy: they all manipulate found imagery to create images that are dynamic, unique -- and reproducible. In printmaking, a process used to duplicate an image, original and found imagery can be layered to create interesting collages in multiple editions of identical or altered variations. In this course, you'll learn several non-press printing techniques, such as such as intaglio and relief processes, that you can replicate at home. Throughout the course, you’ll practice your printmaking craftsmanship to create portfolio-quality two-dimensional works that can be surprisingly consistent or uniquely different.
