At the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), the nation’s premier art and design school, we understand that self-expression, out-of-the-box thinking, and cultural awareness flourish when kids make art. With us, students learn to explore, imagine, and discover in their own unique ways. We help them on their path to becoming the creators, innovators, and problem-solvers of the future regardless of where their academic interests take them. Join our talented teaching artists in a dynamic, interactive online learning environment that combines virtual visits to the Art Institute of Chicago and other exciting sites online with live demonstrations, studio exercises, and real-time feedback from your instructor.
