The SCAD Alumni Atelier, an artist ambassadorship conceived and endowed by SCAD President and Founder Paula Wallace, enriches the creative and professional endeavors of distinguished SCAD graduates. 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 10 days to 10 weeks during an academic quarter at inspiring and diverse SCAD locations — in Atlanta producing literary work or in Lacoste creating and designing art — representing the university as Alumni Atelier ambassadors and serving as mentors to current students.
