Become an Intern

ArtWorks for Milwaukee links professional lead artists with teams of Milwaukee high school students to create community-based works of art and to learn life and career skills. We seek to provide you with the following:

              • Meaningful employment and job training opportunities
                Our goal is to expose you to real-world job experiences so that you can learn the skills necessary to succeed in your career of your choice.
              • Positive mentoring and exposure to workplace diversity
                We hope to provide positive mentoring opportunities for you through interactions with your lead artist, career coach, program assistants, and other program participants. This program is set up for you to learn how to work within a diverse workplace team to achieve personal and team goals.
              • Opportunities to practice artistic techniques and creative problem solving
                You will be exposed to an array of artistic techniques, media, and approaches to help you learn creative problem solving and the other 21st century skills. ArtWorks interns learn life and career skills through the arts. These 21st century skills are some of the most sought-after workplace skills by employers today.
