My Life as a College Intern

Sasha Smith, College Intern

Posted: Tuesday, August 4, 2015

It was March, nearing the end of my senior year at the University of Southern California, and graduation and the real world were right around the corner. I needed a position working somewhere I could be proud of as a college graduate. I had applied for the Met's MuSe (Museum Seminar) Internship as a junior and was turned down, but I decided to reapply as a senior, having gained more experience in the interim. This time I was confident that I was the ideal MuSe Intern, and I was accepted in April, a month before graduation.

The Met's Amazing Teen Programs

Audrey, Former TAG Member and High School Intern

Posted: Friday, June 6, 2014

It's been almost a year since I was a member of the Met's Teen Advisory Group, and I have come to realize something important: teen programs at the Met are amazing! Who would have thought that such a large museum smack in the middle of New York City would offer absolutely free classes to teens that were taught by some the best teachers and artists around?

Posted: Thursday, May 29, 2014

What do you think about when you come to the Met? There are many things you may think of: art, walking, five thousand years of history. But have you thought about making art yourself?

My first introduction to the Metropolitan Museum was through a portfolio drawing class I took in 2010. I think it would be fair to say that the course was the reason I stuck around as a member of the Teen Advisory Group, and thus the reason I'm writing this blog post today.

What is Art?

Tiffany, TAG Member

Posted: Monday, January 14, 2013

Is art merely the "imitation of the good," as the ancient Greek philosopher Plato wrote in his Republic, or the "lie that makes us realize truth," as the Spanish artist Picasso contended? Does art serve a utilitarian, religious, or aesthetic purpose, or no purpose at all?

A Saturday Afternoon at the Met

Audrey, Former TAG Member and High School Intern

Posted: Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Many teens already make a habit out of visiting the Metropolitan Museum, but I thought I should let our blog readers know about a teen program I think they would really enjoy. One Saturday each month, the Met offers a class called Saturday Sketching for visitors ages 11 through 18. I've been attending these tranquil drawing sessions for some time now, and I have enjoyed meeting new friends and catching up with the old ones who frequently come to the class.

As a disclaimer, I don't know how efficiently or elegantly I can write about my experience during the Art and Film Intensive, so when the following feels disjointed, please feel free to add joints, and kindly bear with me.

A Summer Art Getaway

Audrey, Former TAG Member and High School Intern

Posted: Monday, September 10, 2012

Like Evelin, from whom you heard last week, I participated in the Met's Drawing and Painting Experiments program this summer. This is my third year doing the program, and I have found that each year is unique because of the different projects and the student artists who participate.
