Sunday, Dec 8 | 9am-4pm
ages 6-8 | RISD Campus | 2019/CF-CAMP-2779
1 session | 7 contact hours | tuition $140 | lab fee $10


Description

Curious George is (of course), but so are Sherlock Holmes, Sally Ride, Lara Croft and Pandora. Whether they are fact or fiction, detectives, explorers or mischief-making animals, curiosity motivates them all. This course examines that trait from the mundane (What is under the rock?) to the complex (Can we walk on the moon?). Young artists become familiar with stories of human inquiry that lead to their own interpretive artworks in the form of drawings, sculptures and stories, as well as original characters who ask questions and search for answers.

ages 13-17 | RISD Campus | 2020/CW-CAMP-0573
1 session | 7 contact hours | tuition $140 | lab fee $10


Description

Learning 3D modeling is best done with a combination of the proper tool and an appropriate project. In this workshop, that combination is Sculptris and the creation of a chess piece. The session starts with an introduction to the free downloadable 3D modeling tool Sculptris, which enables young artists to begin creating three-dimensional forms on the computer with ease -- and without expensive licensing fees. Students collaborate, with each claiming a different piece (knight, rook, pawn, etc.) built around a common design motif. By the session's end, students leave with completed design files that can be printed at home or through a service like Shapeways.

Description

Carve a little piece of magic to wear! Whether it's a charm on a bracelet or a talisman from Japan, a pharaoh's jewelry or a tiny totem from the American Southwest, small sculptures that are worn for protection or to show status are part of many world cultures. Your soapstone or alabaster charm will be incorporated with fiber, beads and leather to create your personal wearable amulet. On the way, we will investigate the history of amulets and talismans through images that will give context to the process. Bring your lunch, a cold drink and your good ideas!

Description

Have you ever wondered how to capture the wonder and beauty of nature in your artwork, but at the same time express your feelings about what you see? A beautiful seascape can be peaceful, exciting or even terrifying, depending on how an artist paints the scene. In this course, young artists develop their artistic voice while creating artwork that expresses a range of feelings and multiple views of a subject. In the process, the course builds basic art and design skills, and encourages young artists to explore a variety of media.

Description

Celebrated throughout history, carnivals combine elements of a circus, parade, public street party and masquerade ball -- all rolled into one! During the celebrations, people often dress up or operate large character puppets and perform for audiences outdoors or as part of a show. In this course, students create larger-than-life puppets that can move, perform and even parade, while learning innovative puppetry construction techniques using colorful paints, fabrics, assorted modeling and recycled materials. No idea is too wild as they draw inspiration from the carnival costumes and pageantry of Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Southeast Asia and beyond.
