Description

Inspiration for design is everywhere, from the natural world around us to everyday objects. Architects channel this inspiration when building designs that are responsive to nearby surroundings, human inhabitants and the use of finished structures. In this course, students engage in idea generation, sketching, drafting and model making. This concept-to-design-to-build process begins in RISD's Nature Lab, where students investigate various natural structures. They then explore personal, societal and cultural needs as they transform these ideas into drawings and handmade architectural models.

Description

Smile, frown and scowl: These are the ways an animated character can tell a story. Students in this course are taught to advance their skills in hand-drawing characters to concentrate on the emotional range that can only be suggested by animating expressions properly. The instructor presents the animation essentials for the construction of the cartoon head and how to convey emotional range with efficient but effective lines. These animated exercises become video clips and may lead to the next level of animation excellence.

Description

Not all critters are created equal; this is definitely true when animating a cartoon creature. The different limbs, snouts, wings, or the lack thereof, and the bigger issue of the variety of proportions, must cause an animator to approach their movement differently. This course for teen animators builds upon their experience in Drawing for Animation to provide the lessons that will increase confidence when animating animals. The figure-to-ground relationship is a vital lesson as students consider how an animal's two legs, four hooves or scaly belly change their movement from place to place. Topics also include cycles, camera field and composition, as well as a refresher using Dragonframe as the animation interface.

5 sessions | 15 contact hours | tuition $285 | lab fee $15


Description

Character animation often depends on resolving a conflict between two characters. This course for experienced animation artists gives you the opportunity to advance your skills with drawn animation. Beginning with a quick refresher of movement-friendly character design, you'll quickly shift your pencil-drawn actor to a drafted stage. Lessons in cycles, simulated gravity and the figure-to-ground plane relationship are presented as you choose one of two scenarios: a fight (the conflict) or a dance (the resolution). Both are critical moments in the narrative arc, and essential learning for the animator who will leave with movie clip examples of work easily viewed from any internet-connected device. Please bring a USB drive of 1GB or more.

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at the traditional skill of hat-making (known as millinery)? Do you have an idea for a cool cap to complete your cosplay outfit, but don't have the skills to make it a reality? In this course, you'll be guided in the selection of the most appropriate materials for creating artistically sound design concepts. Historical examples are introduced from culturally diverse sources as you learn millinery and hat-making vocabulary as it applies to this niche of the fashion field. You'll leave with your creation, a hat, as modern or traditional as designed.
