STUDIO ART MENTORS
The Studio Arts Mentor program is a paid internship for undergraduate Studio Art majors, which provides an excellent opportunity to gain experience teaching and supervising others. There is a strict Financial Aid Qualification for this program: students should have filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the most recent academic year. Their Student Aid Report (SAR) must indicate an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $10,000 or less. Interns will assist an experienced teaching artist by helping coordinate an apprenticeship program for high school students who are learning to teach visual art to children in New York City camps. Interns serve as mentors to the high school students as well as co-teach art classes. Arts Mentors will be the eyes and ears in the field and help administer the program by identifying problems as they arise, submit daily updates, and document the program’s success. By providing guidance and support, interns serve as role models to the high school students, therefore must be professional and maintain high standards of personal conduct.
