Arts Intensive is an immersive 3-week program that offers students time to focus on a single, project-based arts class with campus faculty and guest artists. The Arts Intensive courses provide the unique opportunity to create in small courses outside of the pressures of the regular academic year. At its best, Arts Intensive creates an atmosphere of intense artistic exploration, encouraging collaboration and innovation. Learn more About Arts Intensive.
In September the residential and experiential art making are the most important mechanisms through which students build community, creative confidence, and connections with faculty. Rather than go online, we have chosen to pause the program for a year. We expect that the program will resume in 2021.
Courses meet daily over three weeks in September. Field trips, workshops, film screenings, studio sessions, and attending arts events are all part of the experience. Each course might schedule class/lecture in the morning; labs, rehearsals or other tutorials in the afternoons and field trips or events in evenings, and on weekends. AI offers supportive peer advising and artistic mentorship and collaborative workshops and events.
Enrollment is by application in April. Whether you are new to the arts or intending to major in the arts, the Arts Intensive program is for you! Rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are encouraged to apply. Regardless of your artistic training or experience, there may be an AI course suited to your interests.
