About ArtiCulture:

ArtiCulture is a non-profit arts education organization offering visual arts classes and workshops for ages 1 year through adults. We also have on-going partnership projects that support community development through creativity as well as outreach programs that aim to increase accessibility to the visual arts. The outcome is experiences for all participants that serve the artistic and social needs of the individual and community.

 

About the Internship:

Interns have the opportunity work side-by-side with professional artists in an educational setting. Interns will have first-hand knowledge of teaching philosophies and curriculum development, while gaining valuable experience in a non-profit arts setting. Responsibilities include helping with the following: prep for classes, management of art supplies and general classroom organization. Interns will also assist in the classroom and oversee students during their lunches and break times.

 

Benefits:

Interns will be a part of a growing Minneapolis art center that places emphasis on the creative process—the act of making art—over product. Interns may take ArtiCulture classes free and also receive discounts on retail art supplies. Interns will gain valuable experience in the field of arts education.
