DescriptionMinneapolis artist seeks an intern/ studio assistant
As the director of an award winning visual arts nonprofit for 10 years, I supervised many interns from colleges and universities throughout the Twin Cities area. I can provide references from these interns asserting to their positive experiences and gainful outcomes.
One year into my career as a full time artist, and having a professional working studio, I am in a position to accept an intern.
In exchange for general help around the studio, some mundane and boring (organizing letterpress fonts, cleaning paintbrushes, sorting paint), some résumé worthy/ skill building (helping to hang work, simple framing, assisting in hand-pulled print runs, documenting artwork) I will assist a young artist in seeking out exhibition venues, review their portfolio, and help with tasks like writing an artist’s statement and documenting work. I have much experience in helping others achieve their art career goals. I also have great contacts and make an excellent reference.
I would prefer the internship to be through a school/ program, but would consider candidates not currently enrolled. The internship is UNPAID. However, I do have 10-15 hours of organizational work I need done that I wouldn’t feel right about getting done for me by an intern for free. So, a short term part time job comes with the internship and could lead to a more permanent, part-time studio assistant position.
-Be able to transport yourself to my studio in NE Minneapolis
-Available 4 hours a week (negotiable depending on your schools internship policies and requirements)
-Be computer savvy. Having your own laptop you bring with you would be helpful but not necessary.
-Be a self-starter
I will begin interviewing potential candidates in late June. Interested applicants please send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org telling me about yourself, your art career goals, and why you would like to be my intern.
