Step Seven: Internships

Ideas for Internships
For fine artists, internships in a gallery, museum, or non-profit institution are very valuable to understand the business side of making art and selling it. Working for an artist as a studio assistant is also a very valuable experience. It may open doors for you that would other wise be inaccessible. While you are working in any internship use the experience to expand your career and social network.
Another great way to expand your net work is to volunteer at art institutions and organizations that you esteem. This is another way of getting to know people who can help you and contributing to your art community.
