Important Questions to Ask

Words and Ideas

Writing is an important component of being an artist, and an extremely important part of being a student at SAIC. Tell us about you, your art-making practices, and why you are a strong candidate for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC) undergraduate program. 

Use your statement as your way to represent yourself and your work. Please also include information about community service projects, exhibitions you have participated in, and any other activities that contribute to the making of your work.

Include information about what inspires you. What does your artistic process look like? Share why you are interested in and utilize certain materials, exhibitions in which you have participated, or other activities that contribute to the making of your work. If you are applying to the BFA with an Emphasis in Writing, your statement also needs to address how you imagine a studio arts environment will impact your writing practice.

Pay attention to the way you construct your essay—watch grammar and spelling. Don’t start with, “I knew I wanted to be an artist since I first picked up a crayon…” There are no word count limitations, but we recommend a 250–500 word statement.

You may submit your artist's statement via the Common Application (within the member specific questions) or through your SlideRoom ePortfolio submission.
