The Studio Project Internship trains 12 high school students each school year to create Studio Project events and programs.

BMoCA is currently accepting applications for the Studio Project Internship Program, a yearlong commitment open to high school aged students. Interns work closely on the development of programming and events for The Studio Project, BMoCA’s vibrant program of events for youth. Studio Project Interns meet and assist exhibiting artists, visit other museums and galleries and collaborate with teen organizations throughout Boulder and Denver.

This internship is an excellent opportunity for students interested in collaborative program development and arts outreach, as well as behind-the-scenes museum experience.

Accepted applicants must commit to the entire school year. Interns must have a sincere interest in art, helping the community, and learning about the museum world. They must also be energetic, creative, and work well in collaboration with other teens and adults.

Time commitment: 1 1/2 hours a week. Some weeks will only consist of one meeting, while others will consist of both a meeting and an Art Lounge. Interns must commit to the entirety of the program. This internship is unpaid and qualifies for high school community service hours.
