Teen Internships

CMA’s Teen Internship program provides 10th-12th grade students with an opportunity to support our various fine art and media art programs. In addition, interns will learn from our professionally trained Teaching Artists during our Summer Art Colony day camps at CMA and on Governors Island. Teens also have the opportunity to assist our administrative staff with developing programs specifically for teen-aged audiences. Please note, we only accept 10th-12th grade interns for our Summer Art Colony Camps.
