Studio Repose Internship Program

What is Studio Repose?

Studio Repose is a teen artist-in-residence program providing a paid internship experience for high school students.

Why Studio Repose is Important

WBCA started the Studio Repose program with the goal of providing a space for creative youth to explore potential career opportunities, thinking of the internship as a holistic approach to workforce development through the lens of an art center.

Studio Repose provides a supportive environment where students gain valuable insights and context as they support youth programs like the WriteNow! and High School Visual Arts Contests, as well as develop essential workforce skills while immersing themselves in an inspiring arts atmosphere.
