Via Arts for Learning Miami

Goal

To provide opportunities for high-school students to pursue their interests in the arts while also learning essential work skills by offering six-week paid summer art internships and apprenticeships.

Arts for Learning/Miami will provide opportunities for high school students to pursue their interests in the arts while learning essential work skills by offering six-week paid summer art internships and apprenticeships. Professional artists will team with students five days a week to focus on a specific art form such as dance, printmaking, painting, graphic design or photography. The program will focus on students from the Miami neighborhoods of Overtown, Wynwood, Little Haiti and Liberty City to help them develop deep appreciation for the arts. Students will also participate in Art Basel Miami Beach, via tours or volunteering.

 Miami’s leading organization dedicated solely to advancing teaching and learning through the arts, Arts for Learning (A4L) works to ensure that the arts are central to the life of every child. Connecting professional visual and performing artists to school, preschool, after-school and summer programs, A4L annually reaches thousands of students, giving them the opportunity to experience and understand an art form, create a work of art, and connect their work to other areas of learning. A4L’s services include teacher and artist professional development, arts integrated instruction, student studio programs, community arts programs and student internships and mentoring.
