In the meanwhile, you can learn more about our camp program and see last year's schedule on our camp page, in case that's helpful. Many of our specialty camps like Art Car!, Reigning Cats & Dogs, and Art of Food will be back. Camps will run June 13th - September 2nd.
We're excited to announce the schedule when we unveil our new website - which will be able to take payment online for the first time in our history!
Volunteers make the world go round, and certainly grassroots organizations like ours!
At the moment we have a particular need for folks who'd enjoy helping with/as a:
- Spring session flier delivery starting Feb. 1st
- Teaching assistant for kids preK+ during daytime hours when school is out
- Art education intern June-September
Looking ahead to spring and summer, we'll need:
- Art festival volunteers in May - September
Longer term committments that could be a little more tailored to individuls:
- Social media and digital communications (4-8 hours per month)
- Retail committee member (10 hours per month)
ArtiCulture is now accepting applications for our 2016 summer internship. We'll take on five interns to assist our teachers in working with children ages 4-12, June through beginning of September. We look for art majors who would like to gain teaching experience - arts education students are a good fit, too.
Summer art teaching assistant Internship:
June-first week of Sept 2016
ArtiCulture is a non-profit arts education organization offering visual arts classes and workshops for ages 1 year through adults. We also have on-going partnership projects that support community development through creativity as well as outreach programs that aim to increase accessibility to the visual arts. The outcome is experiences for all participants that serve the artistic and social needs of the individual and community.
About the Internship:
Interns have the opportunity work side-by-side with professional artists in an educational setting. Interns will have first-hand knowledge of teaching philosophies and curriculum development, while gaining valuable experience in a non-profit arts setting. Responsibilities include helping with the following: prep for classes, management of art supplies and general classroom organization. Interns will also assist in the classroom and oversee students during their lunches and break times.
Interns will be a part of a growing Minneapolis art center that places emphasis on the creative process—the act of making art—over product. Interns may take ArtiCulture classes free and also receive discounts on retail art supplies. Interns will gain valuable experience in the field of arts education.
Who should apply?
ArtiCulture needs highly dedicated, self-motivated and focused individuals to assist art teachers and administrative staff. Recent graduates, college students or career-changers interested in learning about non-profit arts organizations, art education and community outreach are welcome to apply. Candidates working on or holding a BA or BFA in Studio Art will be considered first. Interns must be able to lift up to 30 lbs and stand or sit for extended periods. Some experience working with children is preferred. Intern must be available 25-27.5 hours/weekly.
Send cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll follow up by sending a link to an online application. Potential candidates will be invited to interview for the internship program.
Our new TEEN ARTS COUNCIL is a youth led program to plan, construct and install community public art. As a team - teens, mentors, and lead artists talk with communities to address problematic sites. The team then designs and executes creative solutions, turning community problems into assets. The three pillars of this program are to collaborate, create and impact community.
