The High School Internship program offers a small group of students from LA-area public schools an opportunity to be introduced to the museum and its exhibitions and staff, take part in special projects, and visit with exhibiting artists. Through training sessions, participants gain knowledge about exhibition and gallery teaching techniques and work on public-speaking skills. At the conclusion of their training, interns lead exhibition tours for younger students and peers.
The High School Internship Program is supported by Sony Pictures Entertainment, the Elsie Lee Garthwaite Memorial Foundation, and the Winnick Family Foundation.
