Making+Meaning students are introduced to the exploratory practice of architecture and design. It exposes participants to a wide range of techniques within a conceptual design framework, departing from the recognizable to create unique, engaging content and experiences. Students complete the program with a sophisticated design portfolio showcasing work produced using a variety of digital representation and fabrication methods, made alongside a global community of creators. Students are offered the opportunity to employ cutting-edge tools such as animation, AR content visualization, photogrammetry, and 3D modeling throughout the program.

Making+Meaning is for students and professionals worldwide looking for a shift in career, a break from everyday monotony, or simply to indulge a curious mind. Participants range from existing architecture students looking to strengthen their portfolios to professionals thinking about architecture as the next path in their career. The program culminates with an exhibition during which students present their work and receive feedback from renowned architects, artists, and design professionals.

Registration for Making+Meaning 2021 is now open on the SCI-Arc website. To jumpstart a career in architecture and design, expand existing skills, or inform a possible shift in career, sign up for Making+Meaning 2021. No previous experience is required to enroll.

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.
