Wintersession Travel Courses | Information Session

For five weeks between the fall and spring semesters, RISD offers undergraduate and graduate students rich global learning opportunities through Wintersession (WS) travel courses. These classes are designed to give art and design students the opportunity to embed themselves in a new cultural context, to learn from local artists and designers and to develop their creative practices in a new and inspiring environment. The event will include presentations by Wintersession faculty on their courses, as well as information on the registration, payment and scholarship processes.
