We believe meaning and making are inseparable. Adult Continuing Education (ACE) noncredit courses and certificate programs reflect SAIC’s educational philosophy, adapted for the adult learner.

Explore new subjects, learn new skills, or refresh existing ones in our state-of-the-art facilities and studios. Experiment with new modes of creative production, including laser cutting and 3D printing, or find inspiration with access to the Fashion Resource Center, Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, Roger Brown Study Collection, and Video Data Bank.

Pursue your creative vision under the guidance of our instructors, comprised of practicing artists, designers, and scholars. Learn with and from your peers as you develop and strengthen your creative and critical abilities, and produce work based on your personal research and interests.
