Description

This fast-moving animation course is an ideal jumpstart for a child's first experience with frame-by-frame moviemaking. The art form is presented with accessible language and recognizable examples designed to engage even novice young artists. The exercises not only introduce the digital tools that are a "must" for learning animation, but also include handmade elements that connect students to the earliest animation traditions. Working in small teams that mimic a studio experience, students become more confident with technology, storytelling and cooperative learning.

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

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

Celebrated throughout history, carnivals combine elements of a circus, parade, public street party and masquerade ball -- all rolled into one! During the celebrations, people often dress up or operate large character puppets and perform for audiences outdoors or as part of a show. In this camp, you'll create larger-than-life puppets that can move, perform and even parade, while learning innovative puppetry construction techniques using colorful paints, fabrics, assorted modeling and recycled materials. No idea is too wild as you draw inspiration from the carnival costumes and pageantry of Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Southeast Asia and beyond.

Description

Thor vs. Loki, Kratos vs. Fenrir, Beowulf vs. Grendel -- among many of the featured players in your favorite movies, games and comic books -- are the heroes and villains of age-old myths and legends. Illustrators, animators and game designers spend endless hours reimagining these heroes and legends as thrilling retakes of these popular stories. In this digital illustration course, you are challenged with reinterpreting these characters in your own style and, in the process, you gain a better understanding of drawn anatomy and dramatic perspective, as well as greater confidence with computer-based workflow. Your suite of characters promises to grow quickly, ready for display in your comic book art or game design portfolio.

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

Punch it, pull it, make it move! Clay has a lot of character; wouldn't Gumby agree? Students in this course learn the secrets of frame-by-frame movie making, using clay as a medium to animate under the camera. Experimentation is the objective as students combine material and technique in a traditional and hands-on way, but with the state-of-the-art technology that has made all animation accessible. Once the basics are understood, they'll next develop a narrative idea, style the characters and put them through their paces, working cooperatively to set their Plasticine players into motion telling original claymation stories for family and friends to appreciate.

Description

Some of the greatest paintings ever created are images of people frozen in time. In Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, a counter-full of characters sit stuck in a moment. In Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party a cheerful group of chatting friends are all stopped in mid-sentence. And the subject of Edvard Munch's The Scream makes no sound at all. In Master Pieces, students work in small groups to bring the work of the great masters to life, in a theatrical way. They build and paint backdrops, design and make all the props and costumes -- and they even write a short script and act out the scene from their painting. Whether you like to draw, paint, design, sculpt, build, write or act, there's something for everyone. On the final day of camp, we showcase each scene in one big show for friends and family.
