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

The focus is on fun as students explore the expressive potential of clay as they make inventive forms using the pinch, slab and coil methods to create oodles of inventive objects, and enjoy squishing their hands into this fabulously tactile medium. Students finish their projects by adding surface patterns and colored glazes and then, through the magic of fire (safely contained in the kiln), their raw materials are transformed into cherished works of ceramic art. Projects are equally decorative and functional and include character maquettes, piggy banks and ornamental tiles.

Description

Sometimes one art material is just not enough to express the big, bold and creative ideas you have.

The sky's the limit when you open up the art closet's treasure trove and add in a sprinkle of the unknown -- winding up with out-of-this-world results! Join us to become a mixed media maniac and explore the exciting world of imaginative art, where there are no limits placed on your creativity.

Description

What if insects were as big as dinosaurs, or if you were as small as a bug? Up-scale, up-cycle and up-end your ideas! The course begins with a look through the powerful microscopes of the RISD Nature Lab to connect with the unseen world of natural structures that have always informed art and design. Scale, proportion and texture are explained as your young artist builds drawing and design projects inspired by worlds far away or too small to see.

Description

A paper valentine is fine, but a three-dimensional sculptural valentine is one dimension better! In this class, your young artist can make a "valentile," a low-relief art object made from an easy-to-manipulate polymer clay material that, once baked, is durable and paint friendly. A magnet or a hook can then be added to the back so it can hang on vertical surfaces. Students finish the day with a finished "valentile" that can be presented to their favorite on Valentine's Day.
