Work Study: The Art Colony Work Study Program allows students with interests in supporting the arts, arts administration, events, and teaching, to consider taking on a more pivotal role within the Art Colony’s daily operations while earning class tuition credit. While work-study positions are open to anyone, we particularly encourage those potential and current students who have financial need to consider this option.
