Artslife is a leadership program for teenagers based on museum studies and design. Participants will be introduced to museum careers such as curatorial, education, development, PR/marketing, visitor services, security/registrar and will complete projects collaboratively with museum staff. Following an intensive training week during which participants are introduced to the museum, its staff, and each other, they spend the summer working on several projects. Museum staff, local designers, and other arts professionals act as consultants on collaborative projects and mentor the participants. Students are paid an hourly wage for their participation.
Artslife is a seven week program. Students must be able to commit to the full duration in order to be eligible.
