Norris Hall

Norris Hall



548 E. Broughton St.
Savannah, Georgia

Norris Hall was built in 1858 and once served as a respected home for elderly widows and unmarried women. The 2014 renovation adapts the 1850s structure for use as the SCAD International Center and Language Studio.  The building includes 11 classrooms, a computer lab, two seminar/tutoring spaces, faculty and staff offices, 1st floor event space with catering kitchen, student/staff/faculty refueling zone, two sunny stair lounges and a courtyard.

Images from the facility

Studio spaces allow students to learn classical and contempoary maquette techniques and turn concepts into 3-D renderings.

Some students in the sequential art program create more than 100 drawings a week.

Cintiq pen displays let students begin their work digitally, or in-lab large-format scanners let them scan their drawings in to finish on screen.

The sequential arts program enrolls nearly 400 students a year, yet students benefit from individual professor guidance.

Projectors and Cintiq pen displays let students share their work with the class for review and feedback.

Sequential art students develop their life drawing skills in observation rooms and outside of the classroom.
