Arts Education Intern
June 2018 - August 2018
Costa Mesa, CA
“My favorite part of this internship was the hands on experience and trust that I was able to gain. Throughout the 7 weeks I worked there I was fully immersed in the summer programs I helped to run, I was in classrooms with kids, I was working on spreadsheets, I was face to face with artistic professionals every day. This was the first internship I felt like I was absolutely necessary every single day. I felt like a valuable team player and I was cared for as such as well. Overall, this internship was my favorite job experience so far in my career. I would highly recommend anyone interested in Arts Education to apply. You could not work with better people!”
