Asian Art Museum
Art Speak Internship
Are you interested in art? Want to work alongside other creative teens exploring the intersection of art, culture, and activism? Find out if the Asian Art Museum Art Speak internship program is right for you.
The Asian Art Museum’s Art Speak internship provides career training and monthly stipends to public high school students in grades 10–12. Interns discover Asian art and cultural traditions, and learn from local artists and arts organizations, conduct informational interviews with museum staff to explore careers in the arts, and develop their leadership skills by creating and facilitating virtual art activities.
The Art Speak internship is a paid nine-month experience that runs from September to May. Interns will meet virtually for most of the program year due to COVID-19 (may change to in-person meetings at the museum, depending on public health orders from the city of San Francisco) and are expected to commit six to eight hours each week.
