The Delaware Art Museum’s Appel Education Internship is a summer internship intended for rising juniors and seniors, graduate students, or 2017 graduates interested in a career in art, education, or museum work. This internship honors the memory of Alfred Appel, Jr., professor emeritus of English at Northwestern University where he taught for more than 30 years.
During this internship, the successful candidate will participate in several projects:
- Teaching creative lessons for the Museum’s summer outreach program at libraries and Wilmington city parks.
- Facilitating family experiences during Kids’ Corner Creativity Hours on select Sundays, 12-3 p.m., and evaluating visitors in Kids’ Corner periodically.
- Developing educational public programming for families.
- Assisting with weekly art activity preparation and studio cleanup.
Ideal candidates will have strong organizational, customer service, communication and project-management skills, and be able to work in a collaborative environment. Experience working with children preferred.
Local candidates are highly desirable and encouraged to apply as this internship may lead to future opportunities assisting the Education department on a part-time, contracted basis during the following year.
The intern must be able to work at remote sites using their own means of transportation. The intern must have a flexible schedule and be available for evening and weekend work.
This is a full-time, summer internship. Dates will be coordinated with the successful candidate.
