Undergraduate Student Educator program

Student educators are the public face of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, facilitating conversations about artworks, inviting visitors to express ideas and questions, and exploring the many lenses through which an artwork can be discovered. This semester-long internship course will introduce students with an interest in museum education to the theory, practice, and process of teaching in the galleries, training them to facilitate visual analysis programs for Washington University Writing 1 classes and medical students, as well as K–12 groups. During training students will become familiar with the Kemper Art Museum’s history and permanent collection; learn a variety of educational strategies for use in a museum setting; improve their communication and public speaking skills; and gain experience working in a professional museum environment.

Undergraduate students will receive one internship credit upon completion of this course. Students who successfully complete the training semester are expected to continue in the program and to independently facilitate at least three tours or programs each succeeding semester. Prerequisites: Introduction to Western Art (L01 113), Introduction to Modern Art (L01 215), or equivalent. Applications for spring 2019 are due by midnight on Sunday, December 16, 2018. Apply now!
