Education Intern The Education Intern will assume a lead role in developing and preparing for family programs, including the museum’s major community program, Target Free Sundays. Aspects of this project will include: researching artwork featured in upcoming exhibitions, developing take-home activities for the Summer 2017 exhibition season, organizing supply lists and logistics, and conducting outreach in the Harlem community.
In addition to playing a lead role in family programs, the intern will also complete the following major projects: develop and implement gallery tools for educators to use during tours, train for and lead guided tours of the museum’s galleries, help the Education Department create an Educator Resource Materials packet for the Spring/Summer 2017 exhibition season, and generate a list of possible art-making workshops for Summer and Fall 2017 exhibitions.
Through these projects, the intern will learn how to follow a program from start to finish. This internship is an opportunity for students to develop a thorough understanding of institutional programming that serves diverse audiences.
Qualifications The Education Intern must have excellent writing, research, and communication skills. The last is especially key as the intern will be working not only with the Studio Museum staff, but also with local children and communities. The ideal candidate is motivated, organized, accountable, and understands how to work independently. Preference will be given to students with a background in art, art history, art education, Africana Studies, or a related field.
