School of the Art Institute of Chicago Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
The education that I received from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will forever have an impact on me. I learned many basic skills to create successful artwork, and had endless opportunities to explore ways of making thanks to SAIC's interdisciplinary education. But, more than those basic skills, SAIC taught me how to think in new ways, learning to solve problems and explore the world in a way that I can apply throughout my life and beyond my art career.
SAIC's reputation as the most influential school is well earned. You will have access to leading members of your chosen field, through visiting artist programs and renowned faculty. The curriculum is rigorous, and there is a high drop out rate for undergraduates because of this. At the graduate level, students dedicate their lives to their studies to an even greater extent, and are rewarded for it.
My experience at SAIC greatly shaped my career as a practicing artist. After graduating I was able to build a career as an arts educator. The most important relationships I made while attending SAIC was with my peers. These relationships have connected me to all of my employment opportunities post graduation. SAIC prepared me to be hard working and self motivated in my career.
