Make Studio is a non-profit community-based art organization that primarily serves artists with disabilities. We operate a studio program for individuals with disabilities on a weekly basis, as well as offer artists’ services, exhibitions, and public programs that increase awareness of marginalized and underserved artists.
We offer a variety of opportunities for interns interested in applying visual art modalities to human services and social change. For 2017-2018, this includes our weekday studio program, weekend workshops for teens and young adults with disabilities, community classes for Baltimore City residents, and a variety of internal and external exhibitions activities.
Make Studio is a small, but growing, organization. We’re looking for creative, flexible, caring, and fun-loving problem solvers to work with us as interns for the summer.
As an organization, we offer in-studio and exhibitions programming for adult artists with disabilities — supporting them in positioning their artwork in the marketplace — as well as a range of inclusive community programming in our own gallery and other venues. We are a unique arts nonprofit, offering experiences relevant to other arts organizations, as well as educational and human services settings.
Because we do so much, interns are tasked with supporting the organization in all of these endeavors, with the option to concentrate on things in their interest area (e.g., art instruction and facilitation, exhibitions preps, workshop programming, outreach events, admin, PR, etc.)
