The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists is a nonprofit organization based in the US that provides business and entrepreneurial education to artists. clarkhulingsfund.org/about
Mentorship: Some internships consist of busy work and filing. At The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists, we know the main purpose of an internship is education, and we focus on putting interns with strong, experienced mentors who can instill pivotal insights they can carry into their professional lives forever.
Learning: CHF maintains a robust learning program available to ALL its constituents, so learning is the DNA of every internship. This often includes live, interactive tutorials that train interns on how to execute projects effectively in a professional context.
VISUAL DESIGN INTERNSHIP
Project Description: Visuals are a language as much as words are. Truth isn’t merely didactic content; it’s emotional. Collaborate with the Creative Director and/or Art Director to illustrate intangible concepts, symbolize concrete ideas, and thematically represent content around learning, aspiration, entrepreneurship, and personal growth.
How: You’ll join a virtual ‘designers room’ of peers who pitch ideas and solutions, using your imagination and creative intelligence to produce (and show) key pieces of CHF’s thought leadership, message, mission, and learning architecture.
Qualification: Canva, Photoshop, Illustrator, GoogleSlides. Final Cut Pro or other video or audio (ProTools) editing a plus. Visual Artists with illustration skills a plus.
Why This: All the theory and workshopped assignments in the world are no substitute for APPLIED creativity that is a response to challenges. Nor does beautiful work alone get you noticed in the way a virtual billboard, subway poster, game design, or app will. This is an opportunity to show, share, and showcase your work on a significant social enterprise with active projects you can add to your real-world work portfolio for the long-term.
