Description

"... they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws ..."—Maurice Sendak

Now that's being scary! And if you are not scary, you might be afraid. Everyone is one or the other at one time; this course uses those experiences as inspiration for making art and sharing stories. Young artists will be encouraged to draw, paint and design around the theme of "being scary" as a way to understand the fears that everyone (big or small) has and the courage that is needed to overcome fears. They might even emerge as the "King of All Wild Things!"

Schedule Update: The schedule for this course has changed since originally published. Class will meet on Monday, October 14.

Description

Sometimes one art material isn't enough to express big, bold ideas. Join us to explore mixed media and discover how to combine, layer and experiment with both traditional and nontraditional materials to create one-of-a-kind compositions, three-dimensional formations and magnificent manipulations. 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.

Description

Here is a chance for young artists to emulate the art that exists in nature as they define for themselves the nature of art. Students in this course visit RISD's Edna Lawrence Nature Lab and the RISD Museum in search of animals, birds and more. They then use the visual forms and artworks they discover as inspiration for a variety of creative projects. In the process, the course develops art and natural science awareness, builds basic art and design skills, and encourages young artists to explore a variety of media.

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.

Description

The magic of frame-by-frame storytelling is the subject of this first experience with animation, in which the youngest artists learn the secrets of an art form that they've been familiar with from an early age but, instead of sitting in front of a screen, they are doing the making and the moving. And what they make is hands on under the camera, with an introduction to the computer-based technology that makes all animated art possible. Students learn to plan a project cooperatively with other children in a digital technology classroom where their experiments in animation can be viewed and discussed.

Description

Kids love fashion too! The world of apparel design is fascinating and fun, and may even lead to a career. This course introduces the vocabulary and craft of fashion design, from brainstorming original concepts to describing and visualizing clothing and costume creations. Lessons include illustrating a line, age-appropriate marketing concepts, a tutorial on fabric and cloth, and the basic sewing and patternmaking techniques that serve as a foundation for future exploration of garment construction.

Description

Where does a young artist begin to understand the vocabulary and structure found in the visual arts? This interdisciplinary (drawing, painting, sculpture) classroom experience introduces the "atomic units" of art and design. Students learn how points become lines, then shapes, then planes, before artworks with greater meaning are created. Students then visit the RISD Museum and the RISD Nature Lab to see these atomic units at work.
