Each student will intern in an institution approved by the program director. The purpose of the internship is to give students an insider’s view of the workings of the art world.
Internships seek to make use of students’ particular abilities, such as a foreign language or computer skills. At the same time, students will learn how individual art institutions go about their day-to-day business, and about the functioning of the art world more generally. Students will document their work as a part of the learning experience, and as a means of evaluation. Students will also gain the skills needed to acquire the internship: writing resumes and cover letters, building portfolios, going through a job search, interviewing, demonstrating professionalism, etc.
Internships have been hosted by several institutions around the city such as:
Maison de Papillon
Artists Alliance Inc
Studio in a School
Bronx River Alliance
Open Source Gallery
Society of Illustrators
