The Arts Intensive (AI) Program enrolls small groups of Stanford students in arts courses that encourage a dynamic immersion into the process of art making. The program takes place over three weeks in September before the start of the fall academic year. The program aims to engage students, regardless of the level of expertise, in the practice of a particular artistic discipline. In 2009, Acting, Design Thinking, Filmmaking, Sound Recording and Set Design are offered. Courses are taught by Stanford arts faculty and a visiting artist; students live together in a Stanford residence during the program and receive two units of academic credit. Eligible students will have completed at least six academic quarters at Stanford and be in good academic standing.

Students pay a $600 fee toward the cost of room and board which is charged to the Autumn Quarter university bill. Books and course supplies are provided by the program. Enrollment is by application and takes place in Spring for the upcoming September program. For more information or to apply see the Arts Intensive web site at
