Teen Internships

CMA’s Teen Internship program provides 10th-12th grade students with an opportunity to support our Fine Arts and Media Lab programs during our summer season. Interns will learn from our professionally trained Teaching Artists during our Summer Art Colony Camps at CMA, Prospect Park, and on Governors Island. Interns will participate in art project execution, free time activities, and other projects. Please note, we only accept 10th-12th grade students for our Summer Art Colony Camps.
