Immersive Studio Experience

Sustained and dedicated time in the studio results in superior work and prepares you with the self-motivation and creative momentum needed for working in a professional environment.

Dedicated Time to Create

The majority of our studio courses meet from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. one day a week to allow intensive studio work, the set-up of process-intensive media, and exploration of SAIC’s and Chicago’s wide array of resources.

You also have the benefit of spending concentrated time with your faculty members who really get to know you and your interests so they can effectively mentor you. You will find that this classroom structure lends itself to making strong bonds with your fellow classmates.
