American Indian Arts Institute (AIAI) is a program of study at SCC. Scottsdale Community College is located on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) and wishes, in conjunction with the Community to develop a year-round American Indian Cultural Center with a focus on American Indian students and American Indian art instructors.
At present classes vary depending on instructor availability. Art Beyond the Classroom is offered only in the summer months and travels to Australia and New Zealand for cultural arts exchange. SRPMIC students are given first consideration for filling classes. American Indian students of any other nation as well as non-American Indians of high school age or older are welcome to apply to any or all of our classes.
