AD's Margaret Russell's 'simple truths' for graduates

A good commencement address is irresistible. Whether graduating or firmly planted in career or school, the distilled life experience and wisdom are too convenient and enlightening to pass up.

Teaching travel photography: the foreign and familiar

The photography department at Savannah College of Art and Design has a wealth of great teachers, many of which have taught the class Travel Photography: The Foreign and Familiar in our study abroad programs. Each one has their own approach to the class, but I am sure that the common thread is to help students find their own voice while traveling abroad.

Fashion Week vs. student fashion show

For fashion students at Savannah College of Art and Design, the annual fashion show is both the culmination of their academic preparation and the precipice from which they will jump into the fashion world. Ninety student-made and designed looks graced the runway for the 2014 SCAD Fashion Show at the SCAD Museum of Art.

A taste of tiny living in SCADpad

I volunteered to live in Savannah College of Art and Design's experimental micro-house SCADpad because I wanted to test whether a 135 square-foot dwelling is truly liveable. I figured cooking was going to be my biggest challenge when I moved into SCADpad Europe this week: even when you have full-sized equipment (i.e. stove, oven), cooking in a small space is difficult. Where do you prep? Chop? Plate? Clean up? My mother is a fantastic cook.
