Internship Opportunity - Internship Review
Internship positions are available year round. Qualified individuals interested in interning at Renaissance Press should contact Paul after reading the information below.
The summer internship season is competitive. Internship applications must be submitted prior to April 1st for positions between June and August.
Renaissance Press is a fine-art atelier renowned for innovative research and practice in a variety of photographic and printmaking processes. Founded and directed by Paul Taylor, Renaissance Press offers students of Junior year standing and above an unparalleled opportunity to participate in the day-to-day functioning of the atelier. Interns work alongside Paul Taylor, a master printmaker and former RISD faculty member with decades of experience as an artist, researcher, and teacher. Internships are intensive, exploratory, and rigorous. Interns acquire skill and knowledge by assisting with projects, research, and workshops. These may include, but are not limited to, photogravure, platinum/palladium, and photopolymer.
Taylor is committed to the education and training of young artists. The in-depth nature of such training requires a minimum commitment of six weeks. Interns are encouraged to use the facilities for their personal work on evenings and weekends. Interns that use the facilities will be allocated a substantial quantity of supplies for their work. Part time internship positions are considered on an individual basis.
Interns will never be asked to do anything that Taylor would not do himself. In addition to assisting with projects and workshops interns are responsible for maintaining studio order and cleanliness.
Serious students of printmaking and photography are invited to apply.
Internship positions are available throughout the year.
Please send a letter of interest to Paul Taylor. Please enter “Internship” in the subject line. If you have an online site, please include the site address.
Include in your email your experience and a selection of five images completed within the past year.
After the review process is complete, candidates will be asked to supply two letters of recommendation.
Interns will have use of the studio after-hours and on weekends, as time permits.
College credit for internships may be available through your institution.
