Vicki Wilson, art faculty, is helping to revitalize her southeast Portland neighborhood through the Foster Window Project: a community-based art project utilizing vacant storefront windows.
The three-credit internship provides you with the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills gained throughout the program to a real-life professional environment. Through this experience, you will learn to think critically and creatively. We also expect internships to heighten your awareness of community issues, and inspire you to create opportunities, embrace new ideas and give direction to positive change.
You must set up your own internships; you will not be placed. The internship program coordinator works with you as an individual to refine your resume and portfolio, identify internship opportunities appropriate to your professional goals, create meaningful learning objectives, and guide you through the internship experience.
You will make periodic presentations about your professional internship experiences to peers and faculty.
