RISD Museum Workshops


In partnership with PCFF, the RISD Museum offered the following workshops and other hands-on activities during the run of the 2014 Festival. For more information visit risdmuseum.org.

Art + Design Lab Intensive:
3D Story Boarding

Tuesday, February 18, 1-5pm
Cost: $20

Celebrate the Providence Children's Film Festival through a vacation week hands-on intensive workshop for 9-12 year olds. Developed in the 1930s, story boarding is a process still used today in film and animation that allows for experimentation and brainstorming in a storyline. Our story boards will jump off the page and into 3-dimensional form, creating a maquette that elicits suspense and intrigue.

Open Studio
Wednesday, February 19th 1-3pm
Cost: free with admission, drop-in

Truly for all ages gallery explorations that inspire art making in the studio. Drop-in. Bring your friends and family and experience a creative take on "The Exquisite Corpse", a drawing game played by the Surrealists, in which we explore story telling through word and image.
