This course traces the diverse artistic movements that developed in urban centres throughout Europe from The Great Exhibition of 1851 in London to the Dada movement in Zurich in the 1920s. Students consider the changing role of the artist and the way in which both the subject matter and the stylistic treatment of their art are shaped by and are a response to this “modern” world.

  • A Master’s degree in art history (or related field) required, (PhD preferred)
  • 1-2 years experience in post-secondary teaching

Grünewald Guild Internships

Guild internships may last from 3 weeks to 5 months. All Guild interns work a 40-hour week, with work time divided into three categories:

  • 20 hours/week: specific internship-related tasks and projects, as directed by the internship supervisor(s)
  • 10 hours/week: self-guided professional development, with occasional input from the internship supervisor(s)

Guild interns receive free room & board for the duration of their internship, one free Guild class, and significantly reduced tuition on any additional classes they choose to take. Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to provide financial compensation for our interns; however, some previous interns have been able to secure funding through their school’s financial aid office or their home church congregation. Up to $500 travel reimbursements will be issued to interns upon completion of the summer program.
