"It was very different than what an art class would teach you. You get to interact with someone who has experience in the art world. They talk to you about everything from their styles of painting to their daily routines in life." - Lenny Macareno (Spring 2016)

" Overall I felt excited to have the opportunity to meet professional artists from such a large variety of backgrounds. My experience with the Elizabeth Foundation of the Arts has been insightful, inspiring, and above all, fun!"- Rachel Chaldu (Summer 2015) 

" Working at EFA Studios has been a wonderful experience. The Studio staff is extremely helpful and treats their interns very well. Bill and Natalia are so kind, passionate and genuinely care for their work, each other and the interns. Also, working with various artists has been the highlight of this internship."- Shusma Parmar (Summer 2015)

EFA’s nurturing environment made my time interning absolutely incredible. I really appreciate having the opportunity to be exposed to and to work with a network of exceptional artists. Being at EFA helped me develop my network and networking abilities. I found everyone in the program enjoyable to work with.

It was fantastic! I learned a lot in both working with the artists and inner works of a non-profit arts organization.
