Curatorial Arts Education Intern

Inner-City Arts

Los Angeles, CA

The mission of Inner-City Arts is to use arts education to positively affect the lives of underserved children, improving their chances to lead productive and successful lives by developing creativity, improving learning skills and building self-confidence. Each year, we provide free, high-quality arts education to more than 6,000 Los Angeles children and teenagers living in high-poverty neighborhoods, in addition to 1,000 classroom teachers, teaching artists and after-school providers. Inner-City Arts offers arts instruction in visual arts, ceramics, animation, digital photography, media arts, graphic design, dance, drama and music, all taught by professional teaching artists in fully equipped studios at our campus located in the Skid Row area of downtown Los Angeles.



Inner-City Arts seeks an Intern with a keen interest in the impacts of visual communication in documenting and affecting learning. This internship is an opportunity to experience the inner-workings of arts education programming for multiple stakeholders while working with a team to curate evidence of learning within a gallery space.


The Arts Education Curatorial Intern will assist in the day- to- day running of the Professional Development Institute and student programs, supporting administration, curriculum planning, enrollment, studio assistance and event production, to gather in-depth knowledge of Inner-City Arts' fundamental values, philosophy, and the community served. The Intern will build on this experience to create dynamic gallery space that represents both visual and performing arts product and process.
