Recess Internship

Recess is a weeklong, intensive internship program at the Museum of Arts and Design and meets for two separate sessions during winter and spring school break. As a Recess Intern, you will learn about art and art history with other teens from around New York City, go behind the scenes to develop your own tours, learn a bit about how museums work, and conduct peer-to-peer tours at MAD. Every Recess participant receives a weekly unlimited MetroCard and serves as a member of MAD’s teen council.
