WE ARE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS from menomonie organizations to hOST arts internships

Are you an organization (for-profit or non-profit) that is interested in offering high quality arts classes at no cost to you? 

A.I.M partners with local organizations and schools through its P.A.I.N.T. (Program for Arts Integration for New Teachers) internships.  In collaboration with your organization, our Coordinator develops arts-based classes that can be taught by UW-Stout Early Childhood Education and/or Art Education students who are learning to become teachers.

For 40 hours per semester "internship", the community organization gains high quality interns (pre-service teachers) to teach arts-based classes which can include visual arts, theater, dance, music, and any creative mode of expression. 

This collaborative partnership between the university and the community provides pre-service teacher interns with hands-on teaching experiences, while the interns provide high quality arts instruction to the organization's members.  AIM funds the interns' pay for teaching the classes and for purchasing supplies for the class offerings.



Are you a professional artist with experience working with young people in educational settings? 

A teaching artist is:

  • An accomplished artist in his/her field.
  • Proficient in teaching that includes planning, communicating, instructing, and collaborating with a classroom teacher, to engage young people in learning through an art form.
