Find out what the Michener has to offer young people, and what young people have to offer the Michener.


Volunteering at a Michener summer camp is a fun way for teens ages 14-18 to spend part of their summer and a great way to learn about art, education and art museums.

Art Talk: Video Team

In this exciting program, students will work with their peers to create, develop, write, and film original content for the Michener Art Museum’s YouTube channel. Students will go behind the scenes with Michener staff to learn about the vault, the archives, the library, gallery technology, and the exhibitions.

Creative Arts Classes

Register for any of our diverse series of classes for children and teens- learn about drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, comic book illustration, and much more. We also offer classes featuring our special exhibitions.

College Internship Program

The Michener offers credit and non-credit college internships for the summer in a variety of museum departments.   Projects have included work in one of the following departments: education, collections, visitor services, library and Bucks County Artist Database research project, and marketing and public relations.

Internships require a minimum of 15 hours per week for two months and occur between the months of May and August, contingent upon the intern’s college requirements and project availability. Credit and non-credit internships are non-paying.

Academic year internships may be considered based on availability of projects. For more information, please send a letter of interest and resume to: Zoriana E. Siokalo, Director of Programs, James A.
