Women’s Studio Workshop Internship

August 22, 2012

WHO:

Since 1983, Women’s Studio Workshop’s Internship Program has been providing young artists with the opportunity to learn first-hand how women can manage productive, successful careers as professional artists.

WHAT:

Studio Internships:

Interns work 40 hours a week, generally Monday-Friday, 9-5 pm, but the schedule changes to accommodate the workshop’s schedule. WSW provides a private room in our onsite housing and a stipend of $250/month. Intern sessions culminate with an exhibition of work created during their stay.

Typical interns tasks include, among others: maintaining the studios; assisting residents in the production of artists’ books and projects; designing, printing and distributing brochures and posters; administrative duties (including digital imaging and web maintenance) assisting in all aspects of the exhibition program; preparing the apartments for visiting artists/instructors; setting up evening programs; managing the set up and breakdown of lunch each day; assisting with preparations for fundraising events; and assisting in the day-to-day running of the studios, which includes general maintenance and cleaning.

Arts Administration Internship:

Typically, projects will include: database management, membership systems, donor and grant research, event planning assistance, writing and distributing press releases, archiving WSW documents, answering the phone, and sending out e-communications. Graphic design and web skills are a plus. Experience with Filemaker Pro, WordPress, InDesign, and Photoshop are beneficial, but not required. Communication skills and phone poise are a must.

The Arts Administration Internship includes housing and a stipend of $250/month. Interns work 40 hours a week, generally M-F, 9-5 pm, but the schedule changes to accommodate the workshop’s schedule. This session can culminate with an exhibition of work created during your stay.
