The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program is a juried membership program for professional visual artists. The program provides subsidized studio space for over 70 contemporary artists.

EFA Studio Program internships provide a unique opportunity to work directly with artists in their studios as Artist Assistants and actively contribute to the creation of exhibitions and programs while gaining exposure to the inner-workings of a multi faceted, non-profit arts space as Administrative Interns. Interns will split their time between assisting artists and working with EFA Studio Program staff in the office. A complete listing of our current member artists can be found on our website: www.studios-efanyc.org/member-artists/

EFA Studio Program is seeking enthusiastic and committed candidates who desire to learn about contemporary art and arts administration. Successful candidates will be amiable, adaptable, professional, social, and confident. Interns should be comfortable working as a member of a team—working well with directions, while feeling confident to provide their own insights.

EFA Studio Program intern responsibilities during the Fall will include:
- Acting as Artist Assistants to EFA Studio Member artists
- Working on research projects involving artists, non-profits, and residency programs
- Hands-on planning and assistance for special events, open houses, and galleries
- Daily office administrative duties including: processing applications, filing, data entry, phone and email
- Maintaining websites (Squarespace) and newsletters as well as social media sites, Facebook and Twitter

Qualifications for all EFA Interns:
- Junior, Senior, or Graduate student with related major and/or interest in contemporary art
- Proficiency in Mac applications, Microsoft Office, and Adobe CS preferred
- Basic office skills (filing, phones, data entry)
- Ability to handle artwork and willingness to learn and work with unfamiliar mediums
- Personal experience working on Facebook and Instagram
