Virtual Family Experience 2020

Please join us for the School of the Art Institute's Virtual Family Experience on November 19 and 21. During the Virtual Family Experience, you can take a 90-minute class where you will meet in small groups with an SAIC faculty member, learn, and create a hands on craft! We are also offering a number of information sessions that will help you learn more about the SAIC student experience and available resources so that you can continue to best support your student. All activities are free.

Parent's have the option to take up to two classes and attend as many interest sessions as they'd like. Once you have reviewed the list of classes and interest sessions, please fill out the Family Experience Registration Form to sign up.

Dear Parents,

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) community includes each and every one of you. Your support is beneficial to the ongoing academic and artistic success of your student, and we join you in this commitment. Together, we dedicate ourselves to providing students with a high-quality art and design educational experience that is second to none. This is why we created this website, as a resource for you to keep informed and to have access to helpful information to assist your student. In addition to this website be sure to join our Parent eNewsletter and our “School of the Art Institute of Chicago Parents” Facebook Group to stay connected, ask questions, and to share with other parents.

We look forward to meeting your students, hearing them share their dreams, and joining them in the excitement of learning at SAIC.


Felice J. Dublon Ph.D. Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs
