It’s several weeks of the AMOCA Internship experience and I have experienced a lot. The exhibit Patti Warashina: Wit and Wisdom had a private opening last night and it was a great success. Patti herself with her family came and did a meet and greet with the entire audience. The night was fun and I got to see how an exhibit is put together from start to finish. Needless to say it an unique experience to help out with such an amazing exhibit.
These past two weeks have been very busy with the setting up of the exhibition and the making sure the rest of the teacher packets are good to go it has been rush. The plus side to it all was meeting Patti Warashina in person; she is such a character with a very quirky sense of humor. After reading her book about ten times, I can really appreciate the work that she has produced and respect her even more for the many achievements she has under her belt. Today I had the opportunity to attend a guided tour through the exhibit by Patti herself as she explained what certain art pieces meant and unique insights to how the pieces were brainstormed into life.
I’ve started to work on clay camp under the supervision of Education Coordinator Angie Reyes. I am tasked with presenting new ideas for clay camp and doing what I can to help out the whole process. The other assignment that I will be working on soon is writing letters of sponsorship out to the various possible donors for an upcoming event. Susan, the Head of the Marketing department here, will be advising me and showing me the ropes of how to write these letters properly.
That should keep me busy for awhile as I head into the next two weeks of work. The internship has been fun and challenging and everything I’ve expected it to be.
