The KMAC Museum internship program welcomes students and 

recent graduates who wish to broaden their education and professional

experience by working and learning in a non-profit museum.

KMAC departments offer experiential education in a challenging,

hands-on environment in exchange for a substantive contribution

from talented and interested individuals. The value of an internship

lies in the educational experience it provides for both students and

Museum staff. Interns accomplish needed museum work while gaining

insight and experience to guide their future career decisions.


Please see our current internship opportunities below. If you are interested in volunteering or securing an internship in a department that is not currently seeking an intern, please contact each department head directly and they can register your interest for future opportunities. Our staff contact information can be found here.


Summer Education Internship

About Education Internships

Interns provide organizational and on-site support for several educational programs, which may include classes and workshops for adults and children, family programs, art camps, and artist residencies. Interns perform general departmental duties, such a preparation of program packets, educational materials, research and submit programming options to staff. Candidates must have excellent organizational and basic computer skills and should be comfortable interacting with the public and with children.
A studio or education background is highly encouraged.


Summer interns will mostly act as Camp Assistants and are needed for summer camps and programs in June and July of 2024. Interns will report for training in late May, before camps begin. Interns are needed for the morning (8:30-1:00) and afternoon sessions (12:00-4:30). This year’s camps include ceramics, mixed media, zines and paper art. Interns will assist Education Staff with check-in, set-up, and instruction. Must be punctual, work well with adults and children, and be organized. Education or studio art experience encouraged. College students or above.

  • Interns will have scheduled opportunities to meet with the heads of the other museum departments to ask questions and learn more about the museum as a whole.
