Bio

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from SAIC in 2014. During my time as a student, I was deeply involved in on-campus arts-based interventions to raise awareness for mental health issues and build a community. My figurative oil painting practice, which borrows heavily from studies within video and art therapy, explores themes of mental illness and maternal archetypes. As an Admissions Counselor at SAIC, it is an honor to work with each young artist as they develop a creative vision for today’s world.

This special event is the perfect opportunity for admitted freshmen students to join us on campus to preregister for fall classes, view the work of current first-year students, tour campus and our residence halls, get all of your questions answered, and more.

Highlights

  • We will begin the day with an introduction to the many ways SAIC influences the visual landscape. You will walk away inspired. We promise.
  • You can preregister for your first semester classes and ensure you get your ideal schedule. You can choose Research Studio and English course topics and your choice of studio elective.
  • Every year, we exhibit the accomplishments of our first-year students in a show called ARTBASH. You will get to tour the exhibition with first-year program faculty.
  • Representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, Career Services, SAIC Internships, and Student Affairs will be on-hand to answer all of your questions.
  • You can tour campus and residence halls. Walking the campus, seeing the state-of-the-art facilities and incredible residence halls, checking out the work all around you, and reading the various notices up on the walls and bulletin boards is a great way to get a sense of what life at SAIC is like.

Please note: There are limited slots available for preregistration. Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
