The Art Base Seeks Spring/Summer Interns

The Art Base in downtown Basalt is seeking high school interns and volunteers to assist with after-school spring classes (through May) and with upcoming summer art camps (June through August). Interns may choose weeks to volunteer according to their own schedules, and will have access to art supplies for working on independent projects of their own if desired. If interested in helping children create art during one of these opportunities, potential interns should contact for details and sign-up information.
