Who We Are


Our internship program serves as a valuable window into a working artist's studio-life and presents the potential for lasting, mutually beneficial relationships between students and artists. Students are connected with member artists for individualized mentorship.


Through the Internship/Mentorship program, students will work with an Open Studios artist and show their work along-side their mentor during the Open Studios tour.

Students will be paired with professional artists to develop concepts, create 2D or 3D artwork, write an artist statement, label, price, and show their work.  They will go through all the steps that professional artists go through to produce a show.  In turn, they will assist their mentor leading up to the tour, as well as during the tour.

Internships begin mid-June - October 20.  Tour dates are October 12 & 13 and October 19 & 20.  This is a non-paid internship. In some cases, instructors have offered extra credit.

 We look forward to welcoming our creative youth to the Portland Open Studios community!
