    We're in Wintersession right now, which means six weeks of taking class(es) in any department. The nice thing about wintersession is that it's a nice opportunity to explore the other departments at RISD - painting, sculpture, furniture, industrial design, etc.

And that's just the first three weeks. At the end of the term, each person designs an object of their choice and fabricates it using different techniques such as laser cutting, 3D rapid prototyping, or wire EDM.
