Where kids explore, imagine, and discover!

At the core of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's (SAIC) Children's Workshops in Art and Creativity (CW) is the belief that nurturing creative potential stands at the center of preparing children for life. Whether a child develops into an artist or scientist, encouraging the creative process is essential in the early educational years. In our multiarts workshops and camps, children learn to explore, imagine, and discover in their own unique ways as we help them on their path to becoming the creators, innovators, and problem-solvers of the future. As we explore art and culture through studio projects and Art Institute of Chicago museum visits, children learn a new language centered on art and design and the history and importance of these practices.
