A limited number of work/study positions are available for students or artists who want to work to pay for workspace rental or the tuition for CBA courses. In this program, students can study tuition-free by working a pre-set number of hours at CBA. At least 50% of these hours must be completed before the start of the class and a materials fee must be paid prior to the first class. The Center offers both temporary and semi-permanent positions. Temporary work study can be completed with seasonal or special projects such as the annual Holiday Sale or other scheduled events or CBA projects. Semi-permanent work study students work on projects that include office administration, gallery reception, archive management and general building maintenance.
The Center’s Internship Program is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of non-profit management and training in book arts techniques. Every year the Center brings in a small group of students for an immersive internship in book arts techniques and non-profit management. Interns get hands-on experience and come away with valuable technical skills. Primarily aimed at undergraduate students, summer interns can acquire practical skills in the book arts by working on The Center’s book projects and participating in The Center’s education program, helping to maintain the studios, produce editions, and installing our summer exhibitions. Interns will also assist in the day-to-day operation of The Center as needed. Deadline April 15, 2015.
