Teen Internships

BCA’s teen internship program serves Summit County high school students with the goal of increasing their exposure to the arts, developing leadership and critical thinking skills, and empowering youth to be role models through direct involvement with the community. Aside from receiving academic credit through this program, other benefits include: exposure to the local, national, and international art scene, career development and access to studios on campus. As formally trained assistants, interns may be called upon to co-run field trips, educational programs, and festival events.

In addition to the above opportunities, BCA’s internship program includes an apprenticeship component. Specifically, interns will be able to hone existing art skills and will learn new techniques through access to studios and free registration for campus classes. BCA will also pair interns with local artists who will act as alternative mentors for the duration of the internship.
