School of the Art Institute of Chicago Reviews
This school allows you to explore your creative potential with no barriers, no judgment. Professors are well known artists all over the world; you are learning from people who have been in the field for many years. The degree is well recognized because some of the most famous artists have been taught at the school. Professors are kind and open to all ideas. Most other schools just give you assignments, this school gives you a blueprint for creativity and helps apply your knowledge to whichever field of work you decide to pursue, even one that might not necessarily be taught directly at the school.
My experience so far at SAIC has been very eye opening. I have learned new things that I didn't think I would ever learn in my life. I have been exposed to a numerous amount of opportunities. I have met some amazing people along the way, and overall I have had a great experience!
Being a transfer student from Parsons Paris to SAIC I came with a very fresh outlook to how the school functioned and the overall feeling of the school. The ambiance of the school overall is very artistic, much less corporate than what Parsons was. Facilities are amazing. Teacher are great, though sometimes I miss that some professors are not fully invested in their work outside of school. I feel that SAIC is filled with authentic fine artists, less people that see school as a path to make money but as a way to ultimately learn and grow as artists. In a way, there is something very sensible that makes SAIC unique.
