Summer Education Internship

**Internship positions are filled for Summer 2017.

Each summer from June through August, interns have the opportunity to 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.

Candidates working on or holding a BA or BFA in Studio Art will be considered first. Some experience working with children is preferred. Intern must be available 25-27.5 hours per week.

Camps are 8am – 5:30pm, and are five days long. Interns are scheduled by the week (though not necessarily every week), for either the first half of the day or the second half. Visit the summer camp page to see the schedule. Currently the 2017 internship is unpaid.

To apply, please fill out our online application, and then send a resume and cover letter to lisa@articulture.org.
