PlatteForum’s ArtLab is now accepting applications for interns!
WHAT IS ARTLAB? PlatteForum’s ArtLab is a nationally recognized high-impact, arts-based youth development program for high school youth. ArtLab incorporates the arts with academic, personal, and professional skill development. We use the creative process and the arts as a vehicle to support academic and personal success. ArtLab youth work side by side with professional artists to create 3-5 bodies of work annually, which are professionally presented to the public.
WHO CAN APPLY? Any student can apply who is between the ages of 15 – 19 years old, currently in school and has at least 1.5 years of school remaining before their anticipated graduation. Most students with freshman, sophomore or junior standing will qualify. Students are accepted based on their need for the program in their lives and ability to commit long term and year round to the program. Once selected, students remain in ArtLab until the summer after they graduate high school. ArtLab is composed of 15 students. As students graduate from high school openings are available for new students. ArtLab accepts applications every fall semester to fill those openings.
HOW TO APPLY? Students submit an application to PlatteForum by the deadline. Staff reviews applications and select a group of students who will participate in an individual interview. Students are interviewed by a group of PlatteForum staff, current ArtLab Interns, and PlatteForum committee members. Following the interviews students are notified via phone if they have been selected to the program.
OTHER DETAILS. As an internship program, youth are paid to participate. ArtLab interns are paid a stipend during the academic year $150/semester and a monthly Stipend in the summer. Students work for 3 hours on Saturdays during the school year and attend PlatteForum events. In Summer time ArtLab meets for 20 hours a week over an 8 week period.
