Creative Workshop

Our hands-on art classes for all ages are taught by artist-teachers, and frequently inspired by art on view in the museum. Since 1949 we have been teaching, inspiring, challenging, and encouraging. We love to help you make the artwork you never thought you could make.

Want to Volunteer at the Creative Workshop?

The Creative Workshop occasionally needs high school volunteers or college interns to assist teachers and students with their Saturday weekly classes and Summer programs. Following University of Rochester COVID-19 guidelines, all CW volunteers or interns must be vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, we cannot use your help at this time. You are welcome to apply in the future.

High school volunteers must submit the application linked below. We can only consider youth ages 16 to 24 for these opportunities.

College students interested in museum work, art, art education and related fields may be interested in a Burne Gallery Internship. These credit-bearing experiences are designed to supplement college coursework and provide career-related experiences. They are competitive. Current college students should review the information and submit the application linked below by the deadlines listed on the application page.
