STUDIO

Women’s Studio Workshop hosts two studio interns who work with WSW staff on projects including printmaking, papermaking, book arts, and arts administration, in addition to assisting with the ongoing operations of the facility.

Interns work 40 hours per week, generally Monday through Friday, 9-5 pm, but the schedule changes to accommodate the Workshop’s schedule. WSW provides a private room in our on-campus Anne Atwood artist’s housing and a stipend of $300/month. Intern sessions culminate with an exhibition of work created during the term.
