What if SADI Goes Online?

Our first priority at Moore College of Art & Design is the health and safety of our entire community—that’s why in summer 2020, we shifted SADI to an online format, given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. And guess what? We still had a blast!

Online SADI classes utilized a mix of creative learning approaches and a range of formats, including small group discussions and demonstrations.

Our faculty created a flexible, fun and engaging virtual learning environment, with a structured weekly calendar of regularly scheduled classes and checkins via email and Slack messenger. Students enjoyed a wide range of activity throughout each day—and not all of it took place in front of a screen!

We customized our course schedule to include our most popular offerings, and the ones that work best for online learning and career prep:

  • Animation
  • Foundation Studio I: Drawing
  • Illustration
  • Foundation Studio II: Visual Thinking & Color Theory
  • Painting OR Game Design

Students also received FREE access to Adobe Creative Cloud and a complimentary at-home SADI Essentials Kit, valued at over $400, featuring high-quality art supplies: drawing pads, canvases, colored pencils, chalk pastels, acrylic paints, charcoal and more!

SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF SADI 2020
  • Social events such as Animal Crossing and Minecraft nights
  • Weekly talks with successful Moore alumni like Isabelle Staub and Amy Ignatow
  • Professional development workshops on college prep, career prep, exhibition submissions, socialmedia presence, home studios and creative mindfulness
  • Portfolio preparation and mock interviews with Moore’s Admissions staff
  • Virtual Study Halls for mentoring with Moore BFA students and completing homework
  • A culminating online exhibition on Moore’s website, featuring individual galleries of each student’s art and design work

In spring 2021, we will pay close attention to guidelines from the CDC and the City of Philadelphia to determine whether SADI 2021 will take place online.
