About the Women's Art Institute:The Women’s Art Institute at St. Catherine University annually offers the fully accredited Summer Studio Intensive, a rigorous four-week program for advanced women artists and art students focusing on issues that arise through the combination of open studio work, inspiring conversation, and critique with guest artists, curators and art historians. Begun at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1999, the Institute moved to St. Catherine University in Fall 2012.

Participants gain insights into the work of contemporary women artists; achieve philosophical, aesthetic, and historical knowledge that will help them define their goals as women artists; are given opportunities for intensive studio work and individual tutoring; and develop a body of work based on exploration of selected questions brought by the women and discussed during the Summer Studio Intensive.
