PAPR Internship for Painting and Printmaking.

Available to juniors and seniors in the School of the Arts. A practicum that provides students with valuable real-world experience to work in the field of contemporary art.

Internships are encouraged and should be related to the field of Painting + Printmaking/Contemporary Art to be eligible for PAPR credit. For example, a student may pursue an internship with an art collection, museum, gallery, publication, art fair, or artist. Popular internship options include: Studio Two Three, Triple Stamp Press,  Gallery, VMFA, Candela Books + Gallery, Visual Arts Center of Richmond

Internships provide work experience and help clarify your academic and professional interests. As interns, students have an opportunity to see how things function in particular institutions or organizations. They gain a range of marketable skills, expand their professional network, and enhance their resume.

Completing an internship for course credit requires an override, which is provided to students after an internship application is submitted and approved by the internship supervisor and department chair.

Click here for more information about internship guidelines and the application process.

Students considering Independent Studies are encouraged to instead enroll in currently offered PAPR courses to meet their curricular requirements. If a student is having difficulty filling their schedule, they should meet with their advisor to discuss available courses. Independent Study requests must be endorsed by the student’s advisor to ensure all other options have been considered. In most cases, an independent study will only be granted if it is the only option for a student to graduate in the semester that the independent study course is requested.

Please check the VCU Bulletin for the most up to date information regarding curricular requirements.

Overrides will not be provided into courses that are full when there are spaces open in other sections of the same class. If all sections are full, students must have the explicit written permission of the instructor as well as the consent of the department to over enroll a full course. These overrides are not guaranteed. We encourage students to check for openings throughout the add/drop period and add the class directly if a space opens up.

Request an override.
