Description

This course introduces you to Autodesk's Building Information Modeling (BIM) application Revit Architecture, to help you design, build and maintain higher-quality, more energy-efficient buildings. Regardless of your depth of exposure to CAD software for 2D and 3D modeling, learning Revit and its tools that support architectural, interior design and other models will help you to be a more productive designer and to effectively convey your plans to customers and architecture professionals. You will learn how to lay out, design, build and render models. We'll also cover customizing family components and creating unique elements. A basic floor plan is imported, scaled and traced into a finished design and rendered as interior and exterior models during the course. Note: Students may load Revit onto their own laptops with Windows capabilities (PC, or a Mac with Boot Camp or Parallels); a mouse is essential. Students may visit the Autodesk student community to download free versions of Revit and other Autodesk products, each with a three-year license.

Description

Draw, create, and master Pokemon! This studio art class is for young cartoonists who want to better understand the 700+ characters and creatures that comprise the Pokemon universe. The course begins with tutorials in the drawing basics that contribute to the "pocket monster" style, and explores how this style has been interpreted as the franchise has moved from video games and anime to manga and cards. Lessons in interpretative animal anatomy are presented in the RISD Nature Lab to illustrate the relationship between the natural world and the game's cartoon animal kingdom. Students learn to handle traditional drawing media as they complete exercises and turn sketches into drawings and finally illustrations contributing to the pop culture phenomenon of Pokemon.

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.

What could be more inspirational for a young artist than painting the landscapes and seascapes of RISD's Tillinghast Place?

Through sketches, detailed studies, and finally paintings, students develop skills in the perception of light, color, space and texture.

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

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.

Description

RISD's bayside Tillinghast Place is an art oasis, a place where creativity soars as young artists experiment with image making through a variety of art materials including pencils, paint, cut paper and magical photographic processes. They then incorporate these techniques as they explore bookmaking techniques that take the form of flip books, comic strips and photographic books. Students create characters, record impressions and design pages as they build books to share with their classmates, family and friends.

Description

The natural world can be seen from every window at RISD's classrooms in Barrington, a view that inspires young artists to draw, paint and sculpt projects related to the growing world. Lessons begin with observational drawing and scientific illustration that become the pages of handmade journals and painted artwork for display. The shift from two-dimensional to three-dimensional happens the second day, as students build found-object sculptures and then clay representations of insects and miniature creatures. Flower mandalas, garden crowns and other cross media projects are included to connect a child’s creativity to the garden, meadow and woodland.

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.
