In the same way that professional athletes must exercise a singular focus to obtain success, artists apply a similar dedication to developing their craft. With so much of an artist’s education spent gaining technical ability, the remaining time is usually exhausted on theoretical and historical study. While all this may serve to create a well-rounded student, it fails to provide answers to an important question:
How do I transition from an aspiring artist into a true professional? Are there any predictable challenges I should be preparing myself for now?
The answer is yes! And Women’s ALI was created specifically to help answer these questions and fill the missing gaps.
Enter the Summer Leadership Intensive The Summer Leadership Intensive is a 4-day educational leadership intensive designed to educate young female artists ages 16-23 in both the business acumen and leadership skills they will need for a successful future.

So what does the program look like?
You will be spending four days in a series of keynote addresses, workshops, round table discussions, and activities all designed to help you grow and develop as a woman and as an artist.
