Thinking behind the making

The Thinking Behind the Making

We do not only focus on the end product. We focus on how the end product came to be. We want you to understand the thinking behind everything you create. This causes you to perceive and execute your art beyond normal conventions of a single medium or discipline. And beyond is the most powerful place you can be.  

At SAIC, we believe that meaning and making are inseparable, existing as a perpetual and productive cycle driven by experience, research, and critique. Our commitment to a wide range of media and processes supports our assertion that the artist, designer, scholar, and writer are uniquely qualified as makers to provide leadership, creative perspective, and hands-on skill for shaping today's world, as well as contributing to its future opportunities.
