Learning is about self-discovery through artistic outlet.Emma R.


At SAI we are engaged in life, culture and world events. Our art goes beyond the studio and into the lives of people. Students travel, invent and create, pushing the boundaries of convention as they build communities and opportunities for the future.

Hawaii Art Tour
At the School of Art and Innovation, we enjoy observing daily life and culture as means of understanding our subjects and capturing the authentic nature of people and environments. June 2018 launched our first Drawing and Painting Art tour of Hawaii.  We immersed ourselves into the local culture, attending a lantern festival, eating local food, hiking the trails, visiting a magnificent sandbar to swim with turtles, and experiencing a new perspective of island beauty. We made it our mission to take all of the rich, visual information and capture it in our sketchbooks and painting projects.  We hope to do this again next year…. Maybe Iceland?
