Each summer, Peninsula School of Art provides an internship opportunity in conjunction with our summer programs. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes at a busy and vibrant non-profit arts school and to gain valuable, practical skills in program management, customer service, studio management, exhibition installation, event planning, hospitality, and arts administration.
The Arts Program Intern will assist the staff in the day-to-day management of the school, and is responsible for a wide variety of activities. Versatility is important as workshops and activities change on a weekly basis. The Arts Program Intern is a key member of PenArt’s operations and front office team who helps contribute to PenArt’s customer service goals. The intern needs to be flexible, patient, compassionate and able to accommodate the changing needs of young students, parents, faculty, adult students, projects, and Peninsula School of Art summer programs.
While there is no college credit available for these internships, interns may develop individual projects under the direction of the staff to further personal educational goals.
