About

Each summer, the Art Institute of Chicago hires 8 to 10 paid interns to work in the Museum Education Department. We participate in education programs serving all ages, from pre-school children to senior citizens. Some of our day-to-day tasks include: leading gallery tours for schools, community groups, adults, and families; assisting in studio art activities; participating in research and writing projects; attending museum practices seminars; presenting lectures to adult audiences.
