Students have the opportunity to gain a valuable educational experience while developing their creative vision through exciting art and design assignments and projects. Participants may attend only one session per location (Atlanta/Savannah).
Students attend two workshops each day, taught by SCAD professors or selected SCAD graduate students. Workshops allow students access to the university's extensive facilities, resources and libraries. The program consists of local field trips, lectures, studio work, and demonstrations. A closing exhibition of student work is held at the end of each session.
