Pre-College isn't just an education – it's an experience.

Follow a college-level curriculum that will forever shape how you see art and design, yourself, and the world around you.

Get ready for six weeks that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Live like a RISD college student in residence halls. Engage with peers in and out of the classroom. And forge the kind of friendships that last a lifetime.

Develop as an individual and an artist.

Master a range of tools, materials, and techniques, study with award-winning faculty in our art studios, and develop solid skills in art and design.

Build your portfolio and learn to embrace the process as well as the product.

Step out of your comfort zone, dive deep beyond your initial concepts, and immerse yourself in a critique culture that will inspire you and your peers.
