Each course provides an immersive experience that teaches young makers both conceptual and technical skills, while allowing them the freedom to explore and innovate. • Whether your camp is on campus or online, our museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, is an integral part of our students’ experience.

Because of this, instructors are able to share their passion for making while providing inspiration and motivation for their students. • SAIC recognizes that creativity and innovation flourish when children bring their ideas together.

WHAT MAKES OUR MULTIARTS CAMPS SPECIAL: • For each course, we select a theme and structure projects and exploration around that idea. Our youngest creators will be learning and researching concepts, bringing their points of view to life through the projects they make. And, be ready, they make A LOT of work!!! • Our museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, is an integral part of students’ experiences, and visits to the museum are a part of each class. Be prepared to have your child teach you about their favorite pieces in our collection! • In our classrooms, young artists work both independently and as a collaborative, creative community.

With their dynamic skill sets, interests, and passions instructors are able to create unique and highly engaging classroom experiences for their students.
