Women’s Studio Workshop Studio Internship

Deadlines: June 30th and December 1


Each term, WSW hosts three studio interns who work directly with the Studio Manager and Artistic Director. You’ll work on projects that may include printmaking, letterpress, papermaking, and book arts, in addition to assisting with the ongoing operations of the facility. Studio interns are crucial participants in WSW’s creative community. You’ll be asked to work hard and in return will be encouraged, supported, and challenged in your artistic lives.

Responsibilities:

  • Assisting residents in the studio, as necessary, but especially for artist’s book production

  • Acting as studio assistant for workshops and classes:

  • Maintaining studio functionality: servicing and troubleshooting equipment, performing organizational and cleaning projects, turning over resident housing, and potluck setup/breakdown

  • Potentially completing studio projects in papermaking, screen printing, letterpress printing, or graphic design, depending on the projects at hand

Required:

  • Experience in at least two of the following areas: silkscreen, letterpress, printmaking, papermaking, book arts, or graphic design

  • Ability to prioritize tasks and work independently as well as collaboratively

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Enthusiasm for working with many different people in a studio environment

Preferred:

  • Additional studio knowledge that may be useful: photography, darkroom operations, or ceramics. (Please note: while studio interns have access to the ceramics studio in their off-time, they do not work in that department.)

All internships include a private room in WSW’s on-campus Anne Atwood House and a stipend of $400/month. Interns work 40 hours/week, generally Monday through Friday, 9:00-5:00, but the schedule may change to accommodate the Workshop’s programming. Outside working hours, and with respect to residents’ work, interns have unlimited studio access. The internship session can culminate in a group exhibition of work created during the term.

K. Caraccio Printing Studio Apprenticeship

Deadline: Rolling


Welcome to the K.Caraccio Printing Studio. This fine art printing atelier has been in existence for close to 40 years. I, Kathy, founder and Master Printer, have been mentor to over 75 interns and apprentices. Many of my past interns are now professionals in the printmaking community as gallery directors, master printers, showing gallery artists, fine art poster restorers, special collection librarians and printmaking instructors at prestigious institutions.


The mentor-protégé system of learning is a valued resource where interns are provided hands-on, one-on-one exposure to the field. My role is as a facilitator in expanding the career goals of her interns. It is an opportunity to integrate knowledge from the school environment and the experience of the art world.
