Program Internship

Art education and community engagement are at the core of Fleisher‘s long-term goals. The Program Intern works under the supervision of the Registrar and with the programs team to maintain accurate student records and assist with our daily operations.  The Program intern will learn to work with databases and logic models, create search criteria to hone in on problem areas and work with different areas of the programs department to see how a programs department is run at a small community arts center.


Fleisher has a need for figure models of all types to pose for life drawing and painting classes, and accepts applications on a rolling basis. The environment is professional and welcoming, and the students have a range of experience. For questions regarding modelling at Fleisher, contact Erika Guadalupe Núñez,
