Spring Break Art Camp 2017
Adult and Teen Volunteer Opportunities
In the spring of 2017, the Modern will offer its popular Spring Break Art Camp, a program designed for 3rd and 4th-grade students from selected Fort Worth Independent School District elementary schools. This program is scholarship-based and participating students are nominated by their art teacher. Spring Break Art Camp includes hands-on art workshops and gallery discussions led by local artists.
The entire camp experience is fueled by the energetic dedication of volunteers who fulfill roles of artists’ assistants and camp assistants; each artist has one fulltime assistant and there are four camp assistants who devote their time to assisting art campers. During the course of the week, volunteers develop special relationships with campers, artists, and museum staff, all while learning more about the Modern’s permanent collection and special exhibitions.
Volunteer responsibilities include: helping with students’ group activities; assisting during studio projects; helping artists prepare materials; preparing and installing the end-of-camp student exhibition; and various other jobs throughout the week. Spring Break Art Camp volunteer opportunities are open to mature and serious students, ages 17 and up, with an interest in art and mentoring to young children. An informal interview is required for all applicants.
