As part of our summer season, the Paine offers an opportunity for high school students who are interested in education careers to facilitate hands-on artmaking and arts-integrated activities. Apprentices spend one day a week in the Studio or Children’s Garden helping visitors complete take-home projects related to the Paine’s exhibitions and gardens. The apprenticeship is a paid position, and participants learn about opportunities to engage with ArtsCore’s initiatives as they move from high school to college and into preservice teaching.
To apply, please contact Mary Pleiss, Director of Education for the Paine Art Center and Gardens.
High school students who are interested in an education career can learn more about arts integration through classroom observations and job shadowing opportunities in the Oshkosh and Appleton Area School Districts.
For information, please contact an ArtsCore District Coordinator or Arts Integration Coach.
