DIY, “do it yourself,” practices in art and design evolve when the average individual seeks information and know-how via a self-learning process. Rather than hiring others who have expertise, a DIY-oriented creative would learn then perform the proficiencies required. The first part of the 21st century witnessed a transition from a tradition of centralized manufacturing to a DIY “maker culture” of dispersed innovations. SAIC offers several classes focused on DIY practices as well as maker culture.  Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain to DIY.
