The Studio Project is BMoCA’s answer to purposeful engagement for middle and high school aged youth! This program is targeted to serve a diverse group of youth with events focused on dialogue about art, art making, and social issues as they affect young people. The Studio Project is a three-fold program that includes Happenings (evening art-related events), a school-year-long Youth Art Advisory Internship program comprised of students from diverse high schools, and an at-risk youth outreach effort. The Studio Project is sponsored by The City of Boulder Youth Opportunities Program, The Georgie Fund at the Community Foundation, The JFM Foundation, and The Kevin Luff Family Fund.

Youth Art Advisory Internship (The Studio Project)

Available September 2013-May 2014

BMoCA is currently accepting applications for the Youth Art Advisory Internship (YAAI) Program, a yearlong commitment open to jr. high and high school aged students. Interns work closely on the development of programming and events for The Studio Project, BMoCA’s vibrant program of events for youth. YAAI meet and assist exhibiting artists, visit other museums and galleries and collaborate with teen organizations throughout Boulder and Denver.

This internship is an excellent opportunity for students interested in collaborative program development and arts outreach, as well as behind-the-scenes museum experience. The program requires students to discuss interests and issues that concern teens today. Interns will meet with the museum’s Director of Education and other Youth Art Advisory Interns on Wednesday afternoons from 4-5:30pm during the school year, beginning September 2012. Accepted applicants must commit to the entire school year. Interns must have a sincere interest in art, helping the community, and learning about the museum world. They must also be energetic, creative, and work well in collaboration with other teens and adults.

Time commitment: 1 1/2 hours a week. Some weeks will only consist of one meeting, while others will consist of both a meeting and a Happening. Interns must commit to the entirety of the program. This internship is unpaid and qualifies for high school community service hours.
