SCAD Summer Seminars

SCAD Summer Seminars offer workshops for high school students who have completed their freshman, sophomore or junior years. (Secondary school students ages 14-19 are able to participate in SCAD Summer Seminars Hong Kong.) Students gain valuable educational experience while developing their creative vision through exciting art and design assignments and projects.

Students attend two workshops (one workshop in Hong Kong) and have an all-access pass to the university’s extensive facilities, resources and libraries. Workshops may include demonstrations, lectures, studio work and local field trips, and are taught by SCAD professors, alumni or select graduate students. To provide maximum individual attention and collaborative interaction between students and instructors, class size is small, with generally 15 or fewer students in each workshop. Organized daily social and cultural activities create an authentic experience of life as a SCAD student in the city. A closing exhibition of student work is held at the end of each session.
