Graduate painting students may be sponsored to attend annual meetings of the College Art Association and Southeastern College Art Conference in order to make valuable professional contacts in the field.
Graduate students work in private studios with ongoing mentoring and critical feedback from faculty, visiting artists and their peers. Rigorous studio classes encourage development of personal vision. Courses in contemporary art, art criticism and critical theory offer advanced perspective.
Through SCAD eLearning, the painting M.A. and M.F.A. programs are offered with a limited residency requirement, allowing educators to gain advanced standing or meet school district requirements, or to gain advanced or terminal qualifications while continuing to teach. Students begin in residence in Savannah or Atlanta, take courses online from fall through spring, then finish in residence in Atlanta or Savannah. These are cohort-based programs requiring a summer start.
