Internships at the Sitka Center

The deadline for summer 2016 internship applications was March 13. Thank you for your interest in a position at the Sitka Center.


The Sitka Center's Intern Program began in 1993 as a way to improve service to our workshop instructors and students.

Art Center Intern

The Art Center Intern position is 3-5 months in length and traditionally begins in mid-May and goes through the end of September. These dates are somewhat flexible and are covered by one intern or split between two, depending on candidates' available schedules.

The Intern works 35-40 hours per week and will assist with the operation of the summer workshops (two to three days per week) and work on a graduate or undergraduate level project in support of the Center's programs (the remaining two or three days per week). Projects are developed based on the Intern's areas of interest and Sitka's programmatic needs. Types of projects may include marketing, event planning, graphic design, and photography. In return, the intern receives housing on the Sitka Center campus, a small stipend ($300/month), and the opportunity to work in our studios (as available). This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in the daily operation of an art center.

The Art Center Intern has an opportunity to interact with Sitka staff and approximately 1000 students who attend workshops at Sitka during the summer program. For more details, please open this PDF document of the Art Center Intern Description and Application.

Thank you for your interest in this program.
