| Be prepared to work hard. The foundation classes are there to provide just that- a basic foundation of the rules of art, be it color theory, spacial relations, line & shape, dimension & history. If you do not feel like this would benefit what YOU do as an artist, then go to a community college. If you would like to expand your talents & skills, then go for it- how will you break the rules in new, exciting, original ways unless you KNOW THE RULES?|
If you can't serve yourself in some way, you won't survive here either. The professors are great (most of them) so TAKE ADVANTAGE of them. If you sit around and wait for them or others to hold your hand through your "educational" process, then you're not going to make it. Go take your sense of entitlement somewhere else.
If you think you are going to art school for a free ride, big party and draw some pretty pictures and then be handed a free ticket to Pixar, Disney or any of the biggies, then go somewhere else. The friends that I have that made it to those places worked their tails off from day one at SCAD and took advantage of anything that was offered in terms of connections, help, advice, and internships.
Yet, nowadays, you have a bunch of punks thinking they don't have to work for anything. Fine by me. The more lazy, good-for-nothing, so-called "artists" there are in the world means more amazing, great-paying, creative jobs out there for the remaining hard-working real artists like the rest of us!Just save your parent's money now if you don't want to work or feel the need to complain about hard work. This school ain't for you...

| scad isn't my ideal choice of school. its way too expensive which is for the main reason why I have decided to transfer next quarter. i made some friends here, but i don't love it here either. the school is o.k. its not great. the teachers are okay. they don't really teach you though, which i thought that's what teachers were suppose to do. You are basically paying 50,000 a year so that you can teach yourself the trade. The teacher is only there to provide you with the assignment in its self. then there are strangely a lot of students here who think its the best school on earth? the hype is all built up from the school themselves. I never heard of the school until i was looking for colleges to apply to. scad is fine if you don't care about spending a lot of money and ultimately end up teaching yourself everything. . the surrounding city is again just okay. It gets boring after a while. NOT TO MENTION, Savannah smells like ass outside all the time because of some paper mill near by. Also SCAD accepts just about everyone! But if you get rejected, don't think its because your a bad artist, its probably only because they didn't have any more possible space to squeeze you in. They're not selective, the president Paula Wallace just wants your money. She makes a 2million dollar salary, which is more than any college president makes currently in the U.S. Tyrant? maybe. You would think with all that money they would keep up better with maintenance, but nooo. and when you finally get into your major classes, you basically have to kill to get a spot in ONE or TWO of the only classes for your major course. its ridiculous. My advice would be go to cheaper school where you can get just as good as an education and in most cases an even better one than at SCAD. as for me, I'm just gonna transfer. |
