Nancy Winship Milliken Studio often works with students and interns in a variety of capacities. In an open studio atmosphere Milliken creates original Artist-in-Residencies with lectures, studio visits, and a class project that usually involves the whole school.
Students from different universities who are interested in environmental art are welcome through a selected process to intern during the summer and school year. Many students get college credit and have been awarded grants for this opportunity. We welcome all majors. Past interns have been in environmental studies with minors in studio art, religion, architectural and landscape design, food systems, climate justice, art history. Typically we will collaborate with other artisans, poets, environmentalists, builders, and farmers, making work in response to the landscape, people and animals surrounding us. All artistic disciplines are explored. Many times we are experimenting with materials to see what future projects can be realized, other times we are working on a specific project that needs to head out for an exhibition. The studio is dedicated to using art as a communicator of climate justice and the environmental crisis we all face.
