Seattle Founders Day Event

RISD Serves for Founders Day

Join your fellow Seattle-area alumni in celebration of RISD Founders Day and its mission to engage local communities and expand access to the arts.

We’ll spend an afternoon creating handmade, one-of-a-kind sketchbooks for students at Arts Corps and Urban ArtWorks, two Seattle-based arts organizations. Students at Art Corps—many of whom come from low-income or underrepresented communities—will use the sketchbooks in their visual art and poetry classes, while mentored students at Urban ArtWorks will use the sketchbooks to develop work for a gallery exhibit.

Connect with the local RISD community and use your unique skills and talents to contribute to local youth arts education. Snacks, materials and sketchbook making demos will be provided. Volunteers will receive a limited edition RISD t-shirt to commemorate Founders Day 2020.
