Each year at Pathways, we have several students who are eager to get more experience in art and design. With more corporate partners and therefore more technology/business roles available, we have more difficulty solidifying more design focused internships. Fortunately, we can share programs like the summer Neighborhood Studios program offered by the Greater Hartford Arts Council to give students 6 weeks of a paid apprenticeship experience. This year we had three students participate in two of the six programs offered. Alexis Rivera and Aldane Reid were part of the KNOX program learning about planting and developing community gardens and Jordan Charlow was at the Amistad Museum working with the Wadsworth and learning about photography. Read more about their experiences in the full article.
