Workshops are taught by SCAD faculty, graduate students and alumni, and may include demonstrations, lectures, studio work and local field trips. Participants receive individualized instruction, interact with peers, and explore a variety of hands-on methods and processes. Workshops are held in SCAD facilities, and participants have access to all of the university's facilities, resources and libraries. Workshop selection will be available in February. Program participants who register before workshops open for registration will be given priority placement.
