The Art Institute of Chicago offers internship opportunities for high school teens throughout the year.
The Learning and Public Engagment Internship is a great opportunity for creative teens who are interested in studio arts, museums, education, leadership, and/or working with the public. Working closely with museum staff, interns support studio programs, gallery tours, youth events, and family festivals. Interns also have the opportunity to design and lead their own public programs, job-shadow with staff from around the museum, get access to the behind-the-scenes of the museum, and learn about the museum's collection.
Summer Internship Interested in becoming a Learning and Public Engagement intern this summer at the museum? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to apply. Interviews will take place in May 2017.
