This summer, RISD Pre-College is celebrating 50 years since its launch in 1971. Aspiring young artists and designers from across the country and around the world are sending in their applications to experience a college-level curriculum featuring day-long studio classes, inspiring visits to the Edna W. Lawrence Nature Lab and the RISD Museum, and critiques and final projects that will help shape the way they approach art and design—whether or not they eventually earn their undergraduate degrees at RISD.
Part of RISD Pre-Collegiate Programs, Advanced Program Online is a year-round online intensive for high school students interested in pursuing art and design in college. This certificate program is for changemakers who want to develop their art practice, learn new ways to collaborate, and create a future they’re excited about. The spring 2022 term runs from March 5 to May 29, and the summer 2022 term runs from June 21 to August 14.
Online teen and youth courses in animation, drawing, fashion design, illustration, and art school prep provide a strong grounding in the visual arts, encouraging creative and personal growth through self-expression.
The spring term starts on February 28, and February 23 is the last day to register for our first session. Many online courses fill quickly, so register today!
