The outcome for participants are experiences that serve the artistic and social needs of the individual and community.
About the Internship:
Interns have the opportunity work side-by-side with professional artists in an educational setting. They will become familiar with teaching philosophies and curriculum development, while gaining valuable experience in a non-profit arts setting.

Currently the 2019 internship is unpaid.
Interns will be a part of a growing Minneapolis art center that places emphasis on the creative process—the act of making art—over product.
