Summer programs for aspiring artists at SCAD

February 15, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Savannah College for Art and Design (SCAD) is now taking applications for its summer programs, ranging from art camps for younger kids to intensive art instruction for high-school students.

Rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders can apply to the SCAD Summer Seminar, which will offer two, one-week sessions at the Atlanta campus. Each student selects two workshops to attend for the week, in topics such as painting,  drawing, fashion or storytelling. The workshops provide a combination of instruction and hands-on studio time. Students can choose to live on campus, or not. The application deadline is May 1, but workshop spaces are granted on a first-come, first-served basis, so it’s better to apply earlier.

For rising seniors, SCAD offers Rising Star, a five-week, residential program held at the college’s Savannah campus. In this highly selective program, students take two, college-level courses for which they can earn college credit. Class choices include drawing, computer art, architecture and photography. The application deadline is April 15.

Students ages 7-14 can attend Art Smarts, week-long art camps which will be held on the campus of the Galloway School in the Buckhead / North Atlanta area. (UPDATE 4/17/14: The Art Smarts program has been discontinued.)

A limited number of scholarships are available for summer programs. See SCAD’s Summer at SCAD brochure for more details.
