This 11-day intensive program fully immerses high school students in the RISD Museum, art, and the creative experience. Participants spend two weeks surrounded by artists, designers, and fellow creative thinkers as they examine works of art and design from across time and cultures and respond through art-making, writing, and discussion. They explore the RISD Museum’s galleries and learn how artists, educators, and curators work. No art-making experience is necessary—we are looking for intellectually curious students interested in developing an expansive understanding of what it means to be creative. The application process is competitive and space is limited.
