studio internship

Summer intern Isabel Francis-Bongue polishing her papermaking skills.

Women’s Studio Workshop hosts two studio interns who work with WSW staff on projects including printmaking, papermaking, book arts, and arts administration, in addition to assisting with the ongoing operations of the facility. Interns are crucial participants in the creative community of WSW. They are asked to work hard, and in return they are encouraged, supported and challenged in their creative lives.

Typical intern tasks include, among others: maintaining the studios; assisting residents in the production of artists’ books and projects; designing, printing and distributing brochures and posters; administrative duties assisting in all aspects of the exhibition program; preparing the apartments for visiting artists/instructors; setting up evening programs; managing the set up and breakdown of lunch each day and work as studio assistants in all classes.

Interns work 40 hours a week, generally Monday-Friday, 9-5 pm, but the schedule changes to accommodate the workshop’s schedule. WSW provides a private room in our on campus Anne Atwood artist’s housing and a stipend of $250/month. Intern sessions culminate with an exhibition of work created during their stay.
