The SACI Artists Council, established in 2003, is a group of internationally renowned artists, filmmakers, architects and other professionals in the art world who support SACI and our mission. The Artists Council was conceived by Jules Maidoff, the founder of SACI, as a way for prominent artists to be advocates of the school.

With the gracious support of Corice and founding member Armand Arman (1928-2005), the Artists Council has attracted as members esteemed artists from around the world who believe in SACI’s goals as a not-for-profit international art school that equips students with the cultural and intellectual means necessary to pursue a life of creative inquiry in the field of visual arts.

Members of the SACI Artists Council are continuously active in their careers. Here is some of the more recent news from some of the Council members:
