ARTS ADMINISTRATIVE INTERNSHIP (with a concentration in website management)

The first introduction I had to WordPress was during the Arts Administrative Internship at the Center For Photography at Woodstock, New York. The Center had just redesigned their website and it was my main responsibility to update the website with all of the past exhibition content (photographs and written information) dating from 1996-2013. Not only was this an incredible opportunity to intimately learn WordPress, but also the Center’s entire collection of artwork, artists, and their history.

In addition to working on the CPW website, as an intern working at the Center for Photography at Woodstock I gained direct experience in a professional artist-centered environment that is dedicated to photography based art. CPW’s Internship Program is the ideal hands-on-experience for those seeking to acquire a deeper understanding of the opportunities and services available for emerging artists, gain hands on learning experience in professional practices and standards, be exposed to a range of teaching styles, photographic approaches, philosophies of art and a large range of techniques enhancing your knowledge of the diverse way to approach the medium. As interns, we were provided valuable insider understanding into art organizations as well as launching points into careers as working artists or within the field of arts administration (in either the commercial or non-profit sector), studio management and more.
