Wondered if any of you had experience with this program? http://www.newyorkartsprogram.org/about.html
The New York Arts Program is open to students from all academic majors and all accredited institutions of higher learning. This program is designed to provide those students seriously interested in the performing, visual and media arts with an opportunity to experience the world of the established professional artist or organization in New York City. |
A qualified student spends a semester or term living in New York as an apprentice to a producing artist or with an organization in the arts. At the same time, students participate in a specially designed program of area studies conducted by professionals, including New York Arts academic faculty, in various areas of the arts.
...Some students are not arts majors, but have sufficient knowledge to work in situations in New York: some of these students combine other interests and majors in their apprenticeship. Areas woven into such opportunities in all the arts have included (but are not limited to) gender and ethnic/minority issues as well as a broad range of disciplines ranging from the sciences and education to the social sciences and law.
It looks as though it could be quite interesting.
