Noelle’s Answer

Hi Thalia! Being in New York, you have so many opportunities right in the city! Reach out to art galleries or the museums for internship opportunities. I believe most docents are volunteers as well.

Alice’s Answer

Hi Thalia - That's very exciting and glad to hear you have an interest to learn more about art history! Echoing Noelle's comment, you're surely in the best place in the world to have resources and information at your finger tips. One place I would start with is visiting the MET's website as they have a lot of online resources for students, teachers, and professionals with a timeline of art history and that way you can better figure out what area it is within art history you prefer - it's never too early to start having discussions with others in the field to learn more and to try to gain internship/workstudy experience. Hope that helps!
