Emily was a senior at Cushing Academy who loved the arts and working with children. Because she was thinking about becoming an art teacher, she thought that a classroom-based internship in the arts would help her to decide about a college major.
Emily’s courses in drawing, fabric design, metalsmithing and jewelry stood out on her resume as we searched and contacted organizations for the appropriate summer placement. We connected her to a wonderful opportunity where she was paid as an arts counselor in a vibrant program for the creative arts.
We when visited during the summer, Emily told us that she became involved not only in art, but drama and dance as well. She said that the best part of the internship was making personal connections to the children.
