RISD Continuing Education Announces 140+ Online Courses This Spring

by RISD CE student Christian Heidsieck

Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education is excited to announce more than 140 online courses for adults and teens this spring—including RISD’s Advanced Program for High School Students. RISD CE Certificate Programs are now being offered 100% online.

Continuing Education students can take online classes from anywhere in the world, at any time of day or night. Courses are taught by professional artists, designers, and makers, and RISD CE is open admission—everyone is welcome.

Students can enroll in online courses for personal or professional enrichment and as part of a RISD CE Online Certificate Program. Designed for those looking to accelerate their creative lives and work, subjects range from interior design, product development, and graphic design to painting, photography, and animation.

While some teens may attend RISD CE Online Teen Courses for fun and enrichment, others have academic goals. Online courses like animation, illustration, fashion design, and art school prep provide a strong grounding in the visual arts, encouraging creative and personal growth through self-expression.

While Rhode Island School of Design has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 RISD Pre-College program and will not be hosting in-person classes this summer, RISD’s Advanced Program for High School Students will be available to help young adults develop as artists and grow their college application portfolios.

The spring term starts March 1, 2021. For more information on RISD CE Online Spring Courses, visit ce.risd.edu.
