Location

412 E. Anderson St.
Savannah, Georgia

Designed by Gottfried L. Norrman and built in 1896, the building originally served as the Anderson Street Elementary School. Today the facility houses the foundation studies program, a curriculum of introductory drawing and design courses required of students in all majors. Designed as a blend of the Classical and Colonial Revival styles, the ornate red brick building sits atop a stone and granite foundation. Arched windows, ornamental stone details and a standing seam metal roof crowned by a classical cupola highlight the exterior.

Images from the facility

Students develop an attention to detail by learning form, light, scale, color and composition using still life in class or drawing among Savannah's many charming squares.

Students can experiment with different media on their easels, drafting tables, or the classroom's walls designed for mounting work.

The still life center in Anderson Hall helps students master the principles of drawing and color theory.

The corridors of Anderson Hall are lined with artwork displaying the talents of SCAD's newest students.

In addition to displaying artwork, the corridors serve as communal spaces where studnets can sit and reflect on the work or just pause between classes.
