"This past summer  we had one of your students, Anton Kaplan, intern with us in our art studio for adults with disabilities. He was a superb addition to our studio program, and we were bereft when he left. If he represents the caliber of student at Hampshire College, we would like to have more interns from there." Judith Zoon, NIAD Art Center
"Emily Packer [Hampshire Intern, Summer 2013] completed her internship with extraordinary poise and outstanding efficiency… She was self-motivated, a creative thinker, learned from mistakes quickly, and took criticism perfectly. Emily is the rare blend of innovative outside-the-box thinking, and old-fashioned elbow-grease. It is refreshing to be able to completely rely on an intern." Gabriel Bellman, San Francisco Frozen Film Festival
