    Each term, WSW hosts three studio interns who work directly with the Studio Manager and Artistic Director. You’ll work on projects that may include printmaking, letterpress, papermaking, and book arts, in addition to assisting with the ongoing operations of the facility. Studio interns are crucial participants in WSW’s creative community. You’ll be asked to work hard and in return will be encouraged, supported, and challenged in your artistic lives.

    Responsibilities:

    Assisting residents in the studio, as necessary, but especially for artist’s book production
    Acting as studio assistant for workshops and classes:
    Summer/fall term: Summer Art Institute and Art-in-Education with high school students
    Winter/spring term: Art-in-Education with elementary and middle school students
    Maintaining studio functionality: servicing and troubleshooting equipment, performing organizational and cleaning projects, turning over resident housing, and potluck setup/breakdown
    Potentially completing studio projects in papermaking, screen printing, letterpress printing, or graphic design, depending on the projects at hand
    Required:

    Experience in at least two of the following areas: silkscreen, letterpress, printmaking, papermaking, book arts, or graphic design
    Ability to prioritize tasks and work independently as well as collaboratively
    Excellent communication skills
    Enthusiasm for working with many different people in a studio environment
    Preferred:

    Additional studio knowledge that may be useful: photography, darkroom operations, or ceramics. (Please note: while studio interns have access to the ceramics studio in their off-time, they do not work in that department.)

    All internships include a private room in WSW’s on-campus Anne Atwood House and a stipend of $400/month. Interns work 40 hours/week, generally Monday through Friday, 9:00-5:00, but the schedule may change to accommodate the Workshop’s programming. Outside working hours, and with respect to residents’ work, interns have unlimited studio access. The internship session can culminate in a group exhibition of work created during the term.
