Description

Fly, artist, fly! That is the theme in this design challenge course that begins with concepts in aeronautics, as students design and build fabulous flying machines. Starting with the simplest form, the paper airplane, young artists learn basic folding, cutting and gluing techniques that can turn the four forces of flight (weight, lift, thrust and drag) into soaring science. From paper airplanes, students move on to a different form of flight -- kites -- as they practice their new craft skills and build and test their wind driven constructions. Finally, they imagine a design for a hot air balloon and go about building one that will be the correct weight for lifting off the ground high above RISD's Tillinghast Place.

Description

We dare your young artist to be artistic and innovative. In this course, the design process is introduced to young artists who are challenged to think of new and unusual approaches that achieve exciting results. The instructor presents examples of entrepreneurs and inventors who have changed the world with their product design ideas because they dared to think differently. Building on these inspirational profiles, students develop concepts that push their own creative limits. It is a failure-free classroom that encourages outlandish (but practical) solutions presented by students who dare to imagine, explore and innovate.
