Description

What makes a great photograph? Great photographers know how to capture a moment with a camera's best possible perspective, and how to place themselves and frame a shot for maximum effect. Students in this course learn how to make creative choices for capturing people, places and even optical illusions while making decisions about point of view, depth of field, cropping and other picture-taking essentials. They'll wrap things up by making a handmade album of their photo adventures. Note: Students must bring their own digital camera. A simple point-and-shoot model is appropriate.

Description

Drawing magical beasts -- dragons, werewolves and unicorns, that is -- is only the start, as you learn about their origins and abilities, and their friends and enemies. In this illustration course you'll learn the fundamentals of sketching and character design using animal specimens in RISD's Nature Lab to better understand fur and feathers, scales and teeth. Observing the natural features of different animals and then combining them on paper in new and unexpected ways is the key to better drawings. After an exciting start in the Nature Lab you'll move into a computer lab to learn how Photoshop can make your magical animal kingdom even more fantastic.

Description

Freedom is an ideal that often comes with great struggle. This course presents the concept visually for the youngest of artists. Students hear the stories of freedom fighters, advocates and champions (both historical and fictitious), and connect them to their own experience as they create their own interpretive artworks. The projects encourage a dialogue about civil rights, our responsibilities to one another and the oppression, bigotry and bias that can threaten a free society.

Art is in abundance all around us -- especially in the natural surroundings found at Tillinghast Place in Barrington, RI. In this week-long camp, young artists will explore concepts of abundance and conservation in our surroundings and in our culture, and will create 2D and 3D artwork inspired by nature. Model and mold making, as well as traditional block printing, will allow students to create multiple reproductions of their own designs. Throughout the week, students will use an abundance of creativity while exploring a wide variety of traditional and nontraditional design and artmaking techniques.
