The SCAD Alumni Atelier, an artist residency conceived and endowed by SCAD President and Founder Paula Wallace, enriches the creative and professional endeavors of distinguished SCAD graduates. Under the mentorship of President Wallace, alumni expand the boundaries of their work, strengthen their connection with their alma mater and join a select group of ambassadors within the university’s global network of emerging artists and scholars.

An exceptional artistic opportunity

This unparalleled experience affords the university’s most talented and visionary alumni the opportunity to spend an academic quarter at one of three inspiring and diverse SCAD locations — Atlanta, Savannah or Lacoste — creating and designing site-specific work and representing the university as Alumni Atelier ambassadors.
