Due to thunderstorms currently in the Savannah area Sidewalk Arts Festival has been cancelled.
We know this is a disappointment to hundreds in the SCAD and Savannah community, but safety is always our top priority. Due to the torrential forecast, it would be unsafe for artists to try and create chalk work throughout Forsyth Park.
Because the park is a public space and several events are already scheduled, there are currently no plans to reschedule Sidewalk Arts for the year.
There’s still the Sand Arts Festival on Tybee Island to look forward to, set for Friday, May 1. Hundreds of SCAD artists will take to the warm North Beach of the island to craft sand sculptures under a (hopefully) warm Georgia sky. If a forecast predicts similar bad weather for that day, Sand Arts will be moved to Friday, May 8.

The biggest waste of money is one on a degree that says you are "creative". Teach yourself for free and save yourself thousands of dollars. The quality of the professors is terrible and course material is extremely irrelevant. Do not go here.

I had some fantastic teachers and loved the city of Savannah. I would recommend SCAD to anyone looking for a fine art college.

Bunch of people got scabies and once they sought for help, the head of maintenance Cindy Murray said she doesn't care! She actually said that! It's not SCAD, but A SCAM infested with SCABIES! You're paying 50000 a year, and there is no color printer available on the whole campus for student use! The food sucks! I stopped eating normally... I can't afford eating out everyday and I'm often hungry, but once I get to the cafeteria, I can't eat! I got no appetite.. Local grown food my ass! GMO shit, that's what it is! If you're a first-year student, you are not allowed to park at any SCAD buildings, unless its your dorm. They are trying to encourage you to learn how to use metered parking! Otherwise you'll get a ticket! All they need is your money! Beware!

As an alumnus, I love to tell people about my experiences at The Savannah College of Art and Design and hope this helps you in your search. SCAD is a special place, set in a special city. The flagship campus in Savannah has one of the most unique relationships with a city I have ever come across in the history of my exploration of urban spaces. SCAD's buildings are scattered about the historic district comprising the backbone of the urban structure. Great place to study. I have also been to their Atlanta campus and see another unique relationship between the student and school. SCAD Atlanta campus combines the intimate feel of a small campus with the exciting rush of vibrant, large city. Another great place to study. Academically, SCAD is a young school. They have not yet reached the total years of refinement as in other institutions. However, their educational structure seems extremely thorough and diligent to the growth of art and designers. With the foundation set, it will be exciting to see where SCAD is in 10, 50, or 100 years. If I would have to project, they would continue to be the forefront of art and design in higher education. To be frank, when I see negative comments about SCAD I am not surprised. SCAD has the resources and the instruction for you to be great. It is up to you! On how hard you work and how you are going to take advantage of these resources when you are here. When I see these negative comments, I often see the person revealing their work ethic or understanding about SCAD's resources in the comment. So I am not alarmed. I hope this helps your understanding of SCAD and I wish you luck in your search.

We concur with those who claim that SCAD is only about money. Our son was there for his freshman year. During that year, we paid SCAD almost $40,000, immediately upon the receipt of each bill. Our son left SCAD in May 2013. You can imagine our surprise when over a year later, in July 2014, he started receiving weekly letters from SCAD that he owes $56. None of the letters explained what the bill was for. Our son sent three (3) written requests to Juliette Denmark of SCAD trying to determine what the charges were for and why SCAD was charging him over a year after he left. We received no response from Ms. Denmark or anyone else from SCAD. Instead, they referred our son's account to the collection agency. This extortion attempt appears to be nothing else but retaliation for losing our son's lucrative student account. We will fight this charge as a matter of principle. SCAD's greed will not be tolerated!

For a design school, it is lacking A LOT of design, from the website (MySCAD), to their transportation system, and communication among the student community. I expected a lot more. The college is not designed in a student-centered fashion. Where's the innovation? Where's the new wave of thinking? Where's the design?

Even though I'm here for the Summer Seminar I thought it was fantastic! They had great food and yes during the seminar there are student teachers, however, they taught me really well for the past week and I enjoyed most of the activities we had here as well. Its expensive, but I think its worth it.

Not an "excellent" school. Very much stuck in the past with old-fashioned, southern ideals, and thinking. The progressive, new, forward-thinking, world changing work is being done in the Northeast and West coast. Graphic design and photography schools are especially weak overall. A big red flag is that there are lots of SCAD grads back teaching/working at SCAD because no one wants to work there and no one wants to hire them. Unfortunately, the quality of teachers and quality of teaching is not very high at all. SCAD is a for-profit, non-accredited school, basically anyone can teach here and it shows. The professors are of very mediocre quality, not well known or accomplished in their respective fields, and do just enough to get by. That said, there are occasionally some star students who graduate from the school with impressive portfolios but this reflects more on these individual's inherent talent rather than the teaching being done.
