The education intern will focus on PreK-12 student and teacher engagement. This experiential internship is a great opportunity for a recently graduated college student who wants to gain experience working with school audiences in a contemporary art museum setting. The intern will be trained in the museum’s 3-pronged educational pedagogy ArtInSight, which incorporates conversational-style tours, mindfulness-based insight exercises, and hands-on art-making workshops, and then will implement these strategies as a lead tour guide. The intern will further support education programming by: assisting with teaching artist residency programs; supporting evaluation efforts; maintaining and monitoring art supplies; and conducting research for spring programming.
Successful candidates should be self-sufficient, have an eye for detail, strong oral, writing, and research skills, an enthusiasm for public speaking, and strong customer service skills. They should be able to learn quickly and be confident in their abilities to take on “trial by fire” challenges. Preference is given to candidates with museum / art education experience. Weekend hours required.
