The studio interns will support the studio’s in the place of studio assistants. We expect this will be a great opportunity to understand studio operations during our summer programming and gain important skills and experiences.
A Penland internship offers a unique opportunity to live and work in a dynamic, creative educational community and work with accomplished professionals in a mutual learning and knowledge sharing environment. The studio interns provide day-to-day support for Penland staff, workshops, and studios and, in doing so, will gain a unique experience in their discipline. For the 2021 summer season, we will be offering up to 15 internships and seek applicants in clay (3 – 4), small metals (1), iron (1), wood (1), hot glass and flameworking (2), papermaking and book arts (1), photography, drawing and painting (1), printmaking and letterpress (1), and textiles (1).
