Teen Programs

The Studio Project

The Studio Project is BMoCA’s answer to purposeful engagement for middle and high school aged youth! This program is targeted to serve a diverse group of youth with events focused on dialogue about art, art making, and social issues as they affect young people. The Studio Project is a program that includes Art Lounges (evening art-related events), student exhibitions, and is a school-year-long internship program comprised of students from diverse high schools.

Developed by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, The Studio Project hosts events and programs to facilitate dialogue about art, art making, and social issues as they affect teens. With input from local high school students, BMoCA engages young people in a dynamic investigation of contemporary art and topics important in teenage life, like technology, film, and creative expression.

The Studio Project is sponsored by Art Parts, Boulder Arts Commission, City of Boulder, City of Boulder Human Relations Commission, City of Boulder Office of Arts and Culture, City of Boulder Youth Opportunities Program, and the Georgie Fund.

Studio Project Internship

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

The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) is no longer accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Studio Project Internship Program. The Studio Project is a yearlong internship open to middle and high school aged youth in Boulder County.

Interns work closely to develop programming and events for The Studio Project, BMoCA’s premiere program creating experiences with contemporary art and dialogue about art, art making, and issues that affect teens. Interns learn about museums, work with museum staff, and participate in the behind-the-scenes workings of the museum. 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 community arts outreach. It will also require students to discuss interests and issues that concern teens today. Interns will meet with the Studio Project educator and other Studio Project Interns on Wednesday afternoons from 4-5:30pm throughout the school year, August-May. Accepted applicants are expected to commit to the entire school year.

Interns must have a sincere interest in being creative, helping the community, learning about the museum world and collaborating with other teens and adults.

Time commitment: Meetings are 1 ½ hours a week, Art Lounges are 4 hours on one Friday 4 times a year, and 10 community service hours to be completed at BMoCA throughout the year. Interns must commit to the entirety of the program. This internship qualifies for high school community service hours. Many students are able to count this internship for their Senior Project. This internship is unpaid.
