This internship is to begin in August and run through October, possibly extending beyond that based on a performance evaluation and discussion between the intern and TraillWorks. It is an unpaid internship that requires a two day per week commitment. Sundays are required; the second day will be worked out with the intern and TraillWorks.
Though it's unpaid, this might be a great opportunity for a high school or college student seeking experience and in need of a possible letter of recommendation. Additionally, if the student needs help in portfolio development I would be willing to provide some in exchange for the internship work.
Open to students entering 11th or 12th grade, college/university students, or recent college graduates. TraillWorks is looking for responsible, diligent, and intelligent candidates with strong interpersonal skills. A genuine interest in a career in fine art, gallery work, or teaching art is a must. While specific qualifications for internships such as job experience and knowledge of computer programs are important, a strong academic background and excellent organization and communication skills are desirable.
