I would like to reinstate that the prevalenceBrightArt & Design Department
I would like to reinstate that the prevalence of crime in this town is quite horrific. On the campus tour the guides certainly did not inform us as to the large number of crimes committed against students, but please be aware that although on the facade the town appears quiet and safe, living there is a different story altogether. There are no truly 'safe' districts or areas of town; the rampant crime in Savannah does not limit itself to exclusive boundaries.

Prospective students should also take into account that as of 2001, in the Morgan Quitno National Violent Crime Rankings compiled from FBI Crime Reports, Savannah is rated 32nd in the nation out of 270 cities for the most violent crime in a metropolitan area. These statistics can be viewed online at

I've been going to SCAD for three years.Quite BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
I've been going to SCAD for three years. The painting department here is something of a phenomenon. For a small department a lot of excellent work is being produced. I often find myself enjoying the work done here than any gallery I've been to. Whats great about the department is that they stress the traditional methods of painting, but if you want to try your own ideas, they will encourage that too.

Perhaps the only weakness that we have here is the lack of emphasis on theory. To some, that may raise a few eye brows, but in all honesty that sort of depth requires the wisdom and tact of artists who have been around for 30-40 years and well versed in the techniques of the masters.

The art that comes out of this school is pop and or post modernist. A few recent graduates have had work purchased by MOMA for a show in 2006.

Scad is a great place to become an empolyable artist, but if you are looking to do super creative things with your work and you are more interested with galleries than jobs go somewhere else
