RISD Continuing Education returns to in-person classes this summer; Expands online offerings

This summer, the Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education (RISD CE) is excited to resume in-person instruction on the RISD campus for adults, teens, and middle school students. You can also enjoy the flexibility and convenience of online learning wherever you are. All in-person programs will follow the RISD COVID plan as it evolves.

RISD CE adult online courses offer students a wide range of courses for all skill levels and can be taken any time of the day or night. Our certificate programs are designed for adults looking to accelerate their creative life and work, and topics include animation, graphic design, interactive design, home decor, jewelry making and design, natural science illustration, painting studies, photography, and product development and manufacturing.

Whether online year-round or in-person during the summer, our courses for ages 6-17 allow students to develop their creativity while developing and refining their artistic abilities. Led by outstanding visual artists, designers, and educators, these programs delve into the artistic process with an emphasis on reflection, design, communication, and creation.

RISD’s Online Advanced Program is a year-round pre-college program designed for high school students interested in pursuing art and design in college. This online intensive offers a certificate program for changemakers who want to develop their artistic practice, learn new ways to collaborate, and create a future they are passionate about. Summer Session I runs from June 21 to July 17 and Summer Session II from July 19 to August 14.
