Scenic Art (Paint) InternBookmark This
Seattle Repertory Theatre
155 Mercer Street
DescriptionAre you a creative, driven, passionate about the arts, and looking for a bridge between university and the world of professional theatre? Seattle Repertory Theatre is seeking interns for their 2014-2015 season.!
Seattle Rep's renowned Professional Arts Training Program has been preparing theatre artists and administrators for 20 years. Our interns are bright, self-motivated individuals with basic training and experience in theatre who are committed to strengthening their skills and talents. They are effective communicators with an enthusiasm for community building and self-discovery. And they go on to work at the country's top organizations (including right here at the Rep).
In addition to assisting on all productions and the maintenance of the paint shop, the Scenic Arts (Paint) internship includes intensive instruction on painting techniques such as texturing, sculpturing, and color mixing. Designed for individuals with painting or visual art experience, Seattle Repertory Theatre customizes this internship to enhance skills in perspective, color theory, and faux finishes, as well as emphasize fundamental concepts of scenic design. Interns will also increase their knowledge of the various types of materials and tools employed in a paint shop. The supervisor for this internship position is Charge Scenic Artist Maureen Wilhelm, who offers this advice for future Paint Interns: "You have to be honest with yourself about how much you want to be a scenic artist. It is a commitment, a struggle. It can be painful and joyous at the same time."
