RISD Continuing Education | Explorations at the RISD Museum: Museum Studies

September 11, 2014, 6:30 – 9:30 pm
RISD Labs & Museum Galleries

This fall, RISD Continuing Education and the RISD Museum offer courses inspired by the collection. These courses are organized by and registered through RISD Continuing Education.

Museum Studies
Art and design objects are the gateway to exploring artistic processes, historical context and meaning. This class combines looking and making with each session honing in on an object in the RISD Museum’s collection spanning the ancient past to the present day. Explore the materials, techniques and meanings of an object through close consideration and discussion in the museum’s galleries. Then in the studio, develop a body of work that pursues the ideas generated by the object.

Fee: $405 + $20 lab fee. Museum members receive a 10% discount.
