Community Arts Internship

Community Arts Internship
ACTS335

This course places qualified upper level students who are interested in art and community engagement, in a choice of structured internship positions in public art and art education programs at private schools, museums, galleries, nonprofit cultural organizations, or with community-based individual artists, designers, and collectives. The internship provides an opportunity to expand one’s understanding of education theory, art practice, and community engagement, and will include shared analysis and debriefings of reflective field annotations through electronic journals. This internship is also a chance to establish contacts and begin networking with potential mentors working in community-based art/design practices throughout Los Angeles. Required for students in the Community Arts Engagement Minor. Can be taken as an elective for all other students (three hours a week in class or in the field).
