Artists, Designers, and Scholars as Teachers

SAIC’s faculty members are artists, designers, scholars, influencers, and innovators. They are mentors and educators, but equally, peers and collaborators. Our faculty offer real-world insight because they are experienced practitioners who have been in your position before.

They know what it’s like to re-evaluate their work and explore the idea of being an artist, a designer, and a scholar. And they are passionate about informing the process from conception to execution through unabashed discourse and critique.
