Homer High School Fellows

May 9, 2019

Portland Museum of Art

Do you have a student who is a creative thinker with a strong point of view, who loves the idea of spending part of their summer in an art museum and on the coast? The Portland Museum of Art’s (PMA) Homer High School Fellows program is a paid, part-time Fellowship program at the PMA open to rising Sophomore, Junior, or Seniors in High School who are able to secure a work permit if under age 16. The 2019 Fellowship will run tentatively from June 24 to August 2, with two full week intensives.

Each summer, the Homer High School Fellows work together to strengthen their community and develop their creative voices at the PMA and the Winslow Homer Studio, using the museum’s collection and special exhibitions as wellsprings of inspiration. They also learn what makes museums tick, visit artist studios, create original work, and share their experiences with others. Past Homer High School Fellows have produced and presented popular teen-oriented programming, found out Homer wasn’t who they thought he was, made lasting friendships, and much more.
