Art-making, gallery adventures, and discussion connect teens to art, community, and each other. The Museum is always free for those 18 and under. Drop by for even a quick visit.
The RISD Art Circle is a group of high school artists and art enthusiasts who explore the Museum collection and activate the galleries through events, interpretative projects, community collaborations, and hands-on learning activities, inspiring all of us to see the world in a creative way.
The group meets most Saturdays from late September to early June from 11 am–2 pm. High school students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year are eligible to apply.
Applications are currently closed. The next application cycle will take place in summer of 2024.
Join us for artist-led activities each month.
Monthly from September to May.
