Walter Phillips Gallery
Visual + Digital Arts offers Practicum programs in visual arts studio, curatorial practice, arts administration and research, and gallery installation. These programs are intense experiential learning opportunities that marry practical training in the arts with hands-on, real world experiences through assisting staff in the delivery of Visual + Digital Arts and Walter Phillips Gallery programs.
Practicum programs are ideal for recent graduates (undergraduate or graduate) wishing to gain professional experience within an institutional context. Decision-making and problem-solving skills, communication, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills are valuable components of the program. In addition, participants have one day each week that is dedicated to their personal artistic research activities. These programs require a full-time one year commitment and independent thinking.
