The Studio Assistant Intern(s) will work with the Artistic Director/Master Printer, Senior Printer, and Studio Manager to prepare and execute projects in all areas of operation.
INTERN(S) WILL BE EXPECTED TO:

- Assist with projects, visiting artists, and events

Interns must be able to commit to an average of 11 weeks for a minimum of 16 scheduled hours per week. The best intern is not always the person with the most printmaking experience! Printmaking experience is helpful, but dependability, initiative, attention to detail, organizational skills and the ability/willingness to learn are paramount. Additionally, strong interpersonal skills, interest in printmaking practices, and the ability to work well with others are also important. Preference is given to graduate students, upper-level undergraduates (junior or senior) and those wishing to work consecutive terms. (Students in their last quarter or semester should consider whether their schedule will reasonably accommodate an internship requiring at least 16 hours per week.)
Internship duration: One-semester minimum (11 weeks).
For September–December: Positions filled for 2019
For January–May: December 1
For June–August: April 1
Work Schedule: Daytime hours scheduled between 9:00 AM–5:00 PM, Monday through Friday for a total 0f 16-20 hours per week. Occasional hours during special events.
Compensation: Studio access for qualified interns, deep discounts on Highpoint classes, invitations to Highpoint special member events, and a deeply discounted monthly rate for artist cooperative studio access for a full year after completion of internship.
