Make Studio is a small, but growing, organization. We’re looking for creative, flexible, caring, and fun-loving problem solvers to work with us as interns for the summer.

As an organization, we offer in-studio and exhibitions programming for adult artists with disabilities — supporting them in positioning their artwork in the marketplace — as well as a range of inclusive community programming in our own gallery and other venues.

Because we do so much, interns are tasked with supporting the organization in all of these endeavors, with the option to concentrate on things in their interest area (e.g., art instruction and facilitation, exhibitions preps, workshop programming, outreach events, admin, PR, etc.)

Employer Profile: Globe Collection and Press, Baltimore, MD


MICA acquired the wood type, photo cuts and illustration blocks, and other tools of poster-making from the Globe Poster Printing Corp. in the spring of 2011 and is now integrating the collection into the fabric of the college. The Globe Collection and Press at MICA is being used in the classroom, to create new work reflecting the iconic style of Globe, and to further research the history and importance of the “people’s advertising,” from carnival posters to day-glo promotions for R&B greats like James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Ike & Tina Turner.

Globe Internship

Unpaid/ Internship/ Summer

Globe studio interns will learn the basics of letterpress and screen printing, or, if already proficient, improve their skills
in these crafts by working on internal and external projects. (Recent Globe projects have included posters for Sanrio for the first-ever Hello Kitty Con and the “Pump Me Up” exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.) Interns will learn more about the collection by proofing cuts and type to help with archiving those items. Interns will help to keep the letterpress studio and
Globe shop in the 1515 building organized and ready for printing and other projects, and will safeguard the collection and tools in the letterpress studio by monitoring the studio’s use. Interns will work to develop a stronger appreciation for and knowledge of Globe through branding, social media, design projects, and community outreach, both at MICA and in the broader community.

Employer Profile: The Baltimore Academy of Illustration, Baltimore, MD


Mission Statement

The Baltimore Academy of Illustration offers students of all economic levels the opportunity to receive high-quality, college-level instruction in illustration.

BAI welcomes adult continuing education students, high school students who want to sample college-level illustration courses, and traditional college-age students.

BAI instructors are working illustrators and experienced educators with a variety of complementary experiences and teaching philosophies.

A main tenet of BAI instruction is preparation for professional illustration work—challenging assignments and critiques along with practical knowledge to forge a career in illustration.


The Baltimore Academy of Illustration is an unaccredited, private institution with one goal in mind: to teach artists who want to be illustrators how to become illustrators. Our hands-on approach and small classes allow us to tailor our courses to meet each student’s needs. Unlike traditional art schools, the Baltimore Academy of Illustration focuses specifically on illustration—learning the art while also understanding the needs and requirements of the profession.

Our teachers are working illustrators who have also taught illustration at the college level.  We offer our classes at a fraction of the cost of a 3-credit art college course and while we don’t hand out diplomas at the Baltimore Academy of Illustration, we believe we have something much more important to give our students: knowledge and experience. Art directors don’t ask to see diplomas. They ask to see portfolios.

We believe that an immersive, well-rounded education in a quality art college is the best route for becoming a professional artist. But we also recognize that many talented artists just cannot afford to invest in a four-year program. We offer the same quality instruction. Our students won’t get the degree but they will get the knowledge they need to compete in the marketplace. We believe that our approach represents a new paradigm in teaching illustration.
