2014 Young Artists at Work Internship: 
Assistant Instructors

10 Internships available
Internship period: May through August 2014

Young Artists at Work is BMoCA’s signature summer art camp and offers youth ages 5-18 the unique opportunity to make art in a museum setting in independent, half-day, week-long workshops. The hands-on, interdisciplinary and age-appropriate workshops include working with Visiting Artists and interacting with museum exhibitions. Students are encouraged to explore new and exciting methods and materials. Camps take place Monday-Friday, 9am-noon and 1-4pm, with an additional lunchtime camp from noon-1pm.

Assistant Instructors will work with the Education Coordinator, Director of Education, Visiting Artists, as well as other museum staff to assist with planning and instructing hands-on projects that encourage creativity. Interns must be creative, energetic, work well with children and adults, and have an interest in art education. Interns must also commit to the entirety of the program, June-August. Interns will be assigned either morning or afternoon schedules to allow for flexibility to also have a summer job outside of BMoCA. This internship is competitive. Only ten interns are chosen each summer.

The internship schedule includes one orientation meeting, multiple training sessions, and 11 weeks of workshops, either morning or afternoon schedules.

This internship is unpaid, but qualifies for college credit. Speak with your adviser prior to starting the internship to register for credit.
