Division of Fine Arts

The ten departments of the Fine Arts Division are committed to providing our students with exceptional artmaking, critical thinking, and professional practice skills that will prepare them to challenge conventional ideas, be agile in a fast-moving world, and nurture a life-long passion for creative engagement. RISD has built its reputation for excellence on the strength of its disciplinary programs staffed by faculty who maintain active professional careers and represent a richly diverse ecosystem of philosophies and practices. While students select a major department to be their institutional “home,” there is considerable latitude in the curriculum for cross-disciplinary exploration and collaborative work with faculty mentoring.
