  • TT August

Night-time fun at the RISD Museum. Come check out what we’re all about—watch demos, experiment with art-making materials, hear from students about their work, and learn to look at art and design in a new way. Not your average Thursday evening.


The Third Thursday of the month is also Providence’s Gallery Night! Join free tours of numerous galleries across the city, including the Museum. Learn more here.

August Schedule:

6 pm and 7 pm: Ways of Looking
This guided, introductory session invites curious viewers to learn new approaches to viewing selected works of art or design.

6-8 pm: Artist’s Lab: Color Field
Painters live in a multichromatic world, constantly considering how colors and their relationships impact shape, form, line, symmetry, and space. Drop in to learn about color with Erick Maldonado, Andrew W. Mellon Summer Intern in Contemporary Art.

6-8 pm: Hands-on Art
Inspired by works on view, create art in the Ancient Greek & Roman galleries with the guidance of artist-educator Margaret Owen.
