Why Teach AI?

The Arts Intensive (AI) Program offers students the opportunity to study intensively with Stanford arts instructors and small groups of other Stanford students passionate about art.

What Students Say

Students remark that connecting with the Arts Intensive faculty intellectually and socially truly makes this program exceptional and gives students creative insights that they will carry through their undergraduate studies and beyond to their future endeavors.

Benefits of Teaching

Arts Intensive provides the opportunity to do a range of creative exercises in class and lets students explore their creativity without the fear of failure. Teaching a single subject every day outside of the regular academic calendar allows you to focus on a single creative project without the distraction of other courses and responsibilities. This freedom from the hectic pace of your regular course-load is as rewarding for the faculty as the students.
