Hired to Create. Inspired to Succeed.

ArtWorks is an internship program in the arts for high school (9th – 12th grade) students. Each year, Arts for Learning hires student interns to work in co-ops to flex their creative muscles and learn essential career skills while making and producing works of art.

Intern co-ops are divided by artistic discipline and work under the guidance of an Arts for Learning Project Facilitator. Currently, Arts for Learning offers internships in visual and performing arts. Each year, Arts for Learning will add new internships in disciplines such as music, film, design, animation, and architecture. Once hired, interns report to work at Arts for Learning’s summer satellite locations throughout the Wynwood Arts District and Coconut Grove.
