Parting Words from Target Family Fun Day Intern Kristina Hilliard

I had completed my master’s degree in art history and had just begun working towards my doctorate in art education when I began my internship at the Amon Carter Museum in the education department. I decided to intern at the Carter because I had always enjoyed the museum’s collection and had heard so many good things about the educational programming there. My internship began with conducting gallery surveys, writing instructional resources, assisting the department with clerical/research tasks, and planning family days. I soon became the Target Family Fun Day Intern wherein I have planned and implemented monthly Family Fun Days for the community. I have had a blast working with everyone here and I have also learned a great deal from this experience. I have learned how to design, construct, and implement fun, educational programming that engages the entire community with the works of art in the museum.
