Art Farm is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization registered with the State of Nebraska

Spend your summer participating in an artists' community. Develop new skills, live, work with artists from around the world, and work on your own art projects, on a farm in rural Nebraska.

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 resident artists. Interns need to be self-motivated and resourceful and to appreciate a quiet working environment . Art Farm's location is semi-isolated and rural and because of this condition, co-operation and an ability to share tasks are required.

College Credit
Some of our interns have received college credit as part of their course study. Enquire at your school if this is a possibility. Also check with your school to see if scholarships (or other funding) are available to help offset some of your expenses while at the Art Farm.

The Art Farm season for interns runs from 15 May to 15 November annually, but depends on available accommodation and facilities. This is determined when the artist-in-residence selection and scheduling is complete. Please indicate on the application form which dates you are available between mid-May and mid-November and we shall contact you to confirm dates by mid-April. Internships can be for long or short term—please fill in your available dates on the application form.
