Part-time Professor of Foundation Studies

Description

The SCAD undergraduate experience is anchored in foundation studies – a thoughtfully curated series of courses that provide students with a studio foundation that builds visual, conceptual and creative abilities essential to their development as professionals. These skills propel students into major-specific disciplines where their achievements are internationally recognized with honors such as 2018 Emerging Product Designer of the Year presented by the European Product Design Award, 2018 CFDA Geoffrey Beene Design Scholarship Award, 2017 Student Emmy Award for Best Scripted Series, and more.

You have an opportunity to join the SCAD team of more than 55 foundation studies professors to inspire your students as they develop innovative solutions, advance their drawing and design skills and build the visual language essential to their future creative careers. Ideal candidates will have a strong portfolio of professional work and the ability to teach drawing and design classes in an active and engaging learning environment.

Through rotating exhibitions at SCAD museums and galleries and the university’s extensive permanent collection, you and your students will have exclusive access to objects of study at the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah, SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta and the university’s numerous galleries. Enriching signature events invite visiting artists from across the globe to engage in creative discourse. Recent guest artists have included Carlos-Cruz-Diez, Alfredo Jaar, Carrie Mae Weems, Hank Willis Thomas, Dustin Yellin and Omar Victor Diop, to name a few. This global network of museums, galleries, signature events and more provides unparalleled opportunities for students to explore the emergence of innovative forms of visual expression.

Named among the best small cities in the U.S by Condé Nast Traveler, Savannah offers an inviting climate and a culturally rich downtown, providing a real-world workshop for the study of art and design.
