Artslife is a paid summer internship program for rising sophomores and juniors in high school that combines art and design with leadership training, museum studies, and community engagement. Participants are introduced to museum careers such as Curatorial, Education, Development, Public Relations and Marketing, Visitor Services, Security, and Registrar. During the initial week, participants get to know one another and meet museum staff. During the remaining six weeks, participants work on collaborative projects, with Museum staff, local designers, arts professionals who act as mentors. Students enjoy first-hand experience and the broadest possible exposure to ongoing museum activities, both public facing and behind-the-scenes.

Artslife interns will:

Learn about careers in the arts
Create artwork with local and visiting artists in the Artists’ Studios
Develop and teach peer-to-peer tours
Build and strengthen presentation, communication, and public speaking skills
Visit other cultural institutions in New York City
Interns are paid $15 an hour
