TICA Chicago: Coming Soon!
 
Thank you for your interest in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Teacher Institute in Contemporary Art (TICA) program. 
 
For the summer 2015 term, we have decided to take a moment to restructure our program to focus on our local community as part of a larger SAIC initiative to provide enrichment and professional development opportunities for Chicago Public School (CPS) teachers and students. More info on this exciting opportunity for CPS teachers coming soon. Check back for details.
 
What is TICA?
The Teacher Institute in Contemporary Art (TICA) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is a comprehensive professional development program designed for high school teachers interested in investigating their relationship to ever expanding 21st century contemporary art and design practices. Founded in 2001, TICA has established itself nationally as a premiere teacher education program by revitalizing the creative passions that educators have for making and teaching art and design through in-depth study and interaction with new research models, materials, and approaches.
