RISD is recognized for its distinctive and immersive model for art and design education grounded in studio practice. In conjunction with the publication of The Art of Critical Making: Rhode Island School of Design on Creative Practice (Wiley, 2013), the essential elements — drawing, materials and critique — are considered in a lively conversation with Kelly Dobson, Associate Professor and Department Head of Digital + Media; Cas Holman, Assistant Professor of Industrial Design, Associate Professor, Industrial Design; and Eva Sutton, Professor of Photography. Moderated by Patricia Phillips, Dean of Graduate Studies and Research. Book editor and RISD Provost Rosanne Somerson introduces the discussion.
