Snow Farm - Summer for High School Students

Apply soon!

At Snow Farm, you're not a student, you're an artist.

Snow Farm is the perfect place to develop your artistic techniques while you also build lifelong relationships with people who share your interests.

With small classes, six hours of instruction a day, passionate instructors, and professionally-equipped studios, Snow Farm is a creative community. Some people arrive with specific goals and projects in mind, and others want to explore and enjoy some learning that stands apart from the usual rigors of their academic school year. No matter what they walk in the door with, our participants leave with an unforgettable experience, lasting friendships, and real skills.

Live and learn with professional artists this summer for 2 or 4 weeks. Studios include ceramics, glassblowing, flameworking, painting and drawing, printmaking, metalsmithing and jewelry, and welding and fabrication. In all studios, go beyond the school art class with higher level opportunities.

Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence - DANGERR: A Design Competition

Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence - DANGERR: A Design Competition

Apply by June 2

The Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence (RICAGV) was founded in 2013 after the Sandy Hook Shooting. The organization works with volunteers across the state to lobby and provide education around common sense legislative solutions to violence. Since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida the RICAGV has doubled down on their legislative solutions to ban weapons of war and prevent the militarization of our schools. For this initiative, the RICAGV is proud to support the One Gone Gun project which is working to organize a gun buy back in the state of Rhode Island.

We are looking for bold, affordable works of wearable, useable or decorative art to further an awareness of the gun violence epidemic we still face. We hope to promote conversations that spark debate while providing needed resources to support real action including a planned gun amnesty/buy-back organized by artist Scott Lapham. The competition will also support the RICAGV’s continued advocacy for responsible gun laws.
