Description

Build a foundation for digital two-dimensional animation techniques and begin to develop your personal animation style. You'll discover the technology that makes it all possible, as you're introduced to the concept of the frame (animation's atomic unit), how it turns into a cycle, then a sequence and finally, a story. As a class, we'll review group exercises and student projects to develop a common understanding of what "good" animation looks like and how to discuss this exciting art form.

Description

In a world where all photography is digital you might expect that capturing great images becomes easier. It can with the proper guidance; this course sets teen photographers on the right path as they get a hands-on tutorial creating a portrait photograph. The fundamentals of photography are explained as students work with our cameras (or theirs) to understand digital capture. Lighting the portrait subject in a studio environment is the next topic as students take turns as both photographer and model. After a short lesson in post processing using Adobe Photoshop, students watch as their digital image becomes a printed reality: a studio portrait they light, shoot and get to keep.

Description

Step it up a notch! In this course, you create a custom-fit wardrobe essential. Choose from a "little black dress," first made famous in 1926 by Coco Chanel, or the men's equivalent, a button-front shirt, with options for various collar styles. You start with an easy, basic pattern, and learn to alter the design to suit your personal styles. You then cut fabric of your choice and sew the garment using both hand and machine stitching. The result: a piece that can be worn time and time again, fit for any occasion. All levels are welcome.

Description

Drawing architectural vistas is the ideal way to strengthen observational drawing skills and develop an ability to see, represent, and create believable images. This course takes advantage of the open-air studio of RISD's Providence campus, where students are introduced to techniques in linear and atmospheric perspective. An introduction to dry media materials and techniques is combined with lessons in composition and two-dimensional design to give students an opportunity to create portfolio pieces that depict the built environment.

Description

Central to the design of a fashion line is the investigation of silhouette, pattern and material that defines the establishment of style and provides the initial inspiration for a designer's collection. In this course we explore the possibilities of paper (in all its forms) as a prototyping medium, and how it translates to actual creation. You'll envision an apparel line, beginning with a mood board and fashion illustrations and ending with a maquette garment. Lessons in craftsmanship, visualization, patternmaking, adhesion and fastening are included to give you a glimpse into the business of fashion design. Please bring a sketchbook; all other materials are supplied.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.

Description

Creative mark-making is the foundation for both drawing and painting, comparable to penmanship or a signature. As various drawing and painting endeavors call for different styles of marks, students in this course develop unique mark-making sets for a variety of applications, using innovative strategies and exercises. Working in different size scales and time frames, and inspired by sensory motivations including music, sound and movement, students investigate alternative drawing and painting processes with both familiar and unconventional materials. This course is both a kinetic and reflective adventure in which emerging artists gain confidence, building a repertoire of techniques and skills for drawing and painting, while discovering their unique artistic process and identity.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.

Description

The Code Boss experience continues with JavaScript, the dynamic coding language behind the presentation of interactive 2D and 3D browser content. The instructor presents the document object model, and you'll build competency with associated programming concepts and create projects of increasing visual and computational complexity. You'll discover how to find and customize freely available scripts and troubleshoot them, browse powerful JavaScript-based libraries, and explore framework manipulation to build code mashups for useful prototyping. JavaScript behaviors implemented via event handlers and visual rollovers are taught to give you the experience of setting up a small set of webpages that demonstrate your abilities as a JavaScript code boss.

Description

"The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color." This is how artist Hans Hofmann described color -- as being everywhere around us. Explore the dynamic world of color through self-expression and imagination. First, you'll investigate the wide range of color concepts and theories, as well as the expressive use of color through various materials including oil pastels, watercolor, chalk pastels, colored pencil and acrylic paints. Visuals from various artists -- Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky and others -- are then discussed in class. Finally, using color concepts and a vast array of materials, you'll experiment with subject matter such as nature, still life, cityscapes and collage -- all in living color.

Description

Where the Wild Things Are, Eloise, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Jumanji: What brings these books to life? The answer lies in this course, where students create characters and combine words and pictures to create original illustrations. They explore the art and business of children's book illustration -- including character development, establishing a setting, and text and image relationship. The materials and techniques are discussed as students begin in black and white but move quickly to full-color illustrations with paint and ink. By the end of the course, students will have completed one cover design and a two-page painting appropriate for their artist's portfolio.

Description

Shepard Fairey, the controversial RISD alumnus, manipulates found images to create his dynamic posters, following in the tradition of Andy Warhol's graphic icons. Through printmaking -- a process used to duplicate an image -- both original and found imagery can be layered to create original collages in multiple editions of identical or altered variations. In this course, students learn several non-press printing techniques that can be replicated at home, such as relief prints, silkscreen and pronto plates. Throughout the course, they practice their printmaking craftsmanship to create portfolio-quality two-dimensional works that are surprisingly consistent or uniquely different.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.
