Summer Arts Institute Instructors come from the Stanford academic and artistic community, and all share a passion for teaching. Each course offered as part of the Summer Arts Institute is the unique creation of its instructor, and reflects the instructor’s distinctive style and expertise.
Throughout the program, additional guest artists and lecturers from the Stanford community will be on hand to further enhance and extend the academic experience for participants through single- or multi-day workshops.
Summer Arts Institute residential counselors are selected from the best and the brightest university undergraduates and graduates, and have a passion for teaching and mentoring others. They are primarily current or former Stanford students, but also come from other fantastic schools. The counselors serve a dual role while supervising the students in their residential life, providing innovative social programming and supervision for program activities in addition to serving as teaching assistants for the academic program.
