Event Details

SCAD Parent and Family Weekend 2013 will take place in Savannah, Georgia, April 26-28, coinciding with Sidewalk Arts Festival, our annual signature event featuring a chalk drawing competition for the SCAD community where art masterpieces are created on the sidewalks in Forsyth Park. Parent and Family Weekend will kick-off Friday with an open house in select academic buildings, a family style BBQ, and Films in Forsyth, followed by a fun-filled Saturday including an informative panel discussion by deans, an art demonstration, weekend discounts, exclusive SCAD gift, and other exciting activities. The cost for the weekend is $20 per person, so gather your family and invite your SCAD student to join you! Invitations will arrive in your mailbox soon, but you are welcome to email parents@scad.edu if you have questions. When securing accommodations, keep in mind that most historic district hotels, such as The Mansion on Forsyth Park, Andaz, Hampton Inn and Suites, The Marshall House and Staybridge Suites, may offer a special SCAD friends and family rate, so be sure to ask. We look forward to seeing you in April!

 

Please note, if your student will be attending Friday's BBQ with you they will need a ticket also. Student tickets are $5 and can be purchased with the parent/family member tickets.

 

We ask that guests register for Parent and Family Weekend by Friday, April 19.
