  • All Internships are for 1 term and can last 8 - 13 weeks.

  • Interns must be available 2 days per week during the hours of 10am – 6pm.

  • All internships are unpaid.

  • All interns receive a one-year free membership and open workshop hours to use the studio (based on amount of hours worked).

Skills Needed


MGC is looking for someone with an outgoing personality who can help grow awareness and excitement for the programs we offer. Experience in printmaking is preferred. Interns will need to have a working knowledge of Photoshop, google drive, social media (Instagram/twitter), video editing (basic), and basic camera skills. A good sense of direction and knowledge of the New York City subway system is a plus.


Interns will work directly with the program manager on several projects throughout the term. The program manager will work one-on-one with interns to help them hone their skills, as mentioned above, and mentor them throughout the program.
