APPLICATIONS DUE: Friday, April 15, by 5pm.

ART EDUCATION INTERNSHIPS
For College Students: Arts education interns learn the administrative side of running an art education program. They assist with registering students, communicating with education staff members, and coordinating supply lists. An internship typically comprises a fall, winter, or spring semester or the summer break. To apply, please email information@findyourartist.org.

For MEA and MFA Students: Applications are now being accepted for the summer Team Lead Internship. This provides graduate level students the opportunity to learn about running an arts education program by managing 50 classes and break times conducted over an 8 week period, Monday through Friday, June – August. Please click here for an application form.

CURATORIAL INTERNSHIPS
For College and Graduate Level Students: Curatorial interns help with most aspects of our exhibition program: registering images and artworks, creating signage and pedagogical text, designing catalogues where applicable, preparing works and galleries for installation, installation itself and de-installation. Other possible tasks include writing press releases and coordinating gallery talks and cross-disciplinary complementary programs. To apply, please send an email with a brief statement of interest and a resume to information@findyourartist.org.

ADMINISTRATIVE INTERNSHIPS
For College and Graduate Students: If you are interested in the administrative aspects of running an arts center, rather than in the curatorial or educational programs, please outline this interest in your statement of interest.

AAC internships may be used to earn credit from the student’s college or university. The Team Lead internship has a stipend.
