Here is some general information about Art Farm's intern program and what is offered and requested in return:
Art Farm's program for interns offers farmhouse accommodation and a small workspace to pursue their artwork. We ask for 25 hours assistance per week from interns to help renovate and maintain Art Farm's buildings and grounds and assist the artists-in-residence. Interns need to be self-motivated and resourceful and to appreciate a quiet working environment if you need an active social life, this may not be for you. Art Farm's location is semi-isolated and rural and because of this condition, co-operation and an ability to share tasks are required.
Art Farm offers...
...Free accommodations and internet connection
...A small personal artwork space in one of Art Farm's buildings
...Access to materials, machinery and equipment can be arranged with Art Farm
Art farm requests...

(up to 25 hours assistance per week). Work for Art Farm could include: general construction, deconstruction and carpentry; running errands; grounds maintenance; gardening, or office work.
