Get Involved: Art Club, Internships and Scholarships

Art Club Crest

The BHSU Art Club is designed for anyone and everyone remotely interested in art. The mission of the Art Club is to promote visual art, hold workshops, bring in professional artists, volunteer work, take trips to museums and art festivals such as the Denver Art Week, and get involved in community events. During the year, the club gets involved in promoting art throughout the campus and the Spearfish community. If you have an interest in joining the Art Club at BHSU or for more information, email the Art Club advisor Desy Schoenewies at 

BHSU offers a variety of scholarships for both incoming freshmen art majors as well as students continuing their art majors. Scholarship awards are based upon academic standing and a student's commitment to the program. Scholarship applications are available online, with the added option to print. Keep in mind that it is important to get involved in the program and to apply for scholarships early in the semester!

BHSU also offers the possibility of art internships. These internships can be either on or off-campus and are offered in a variety of settings that will appeal to aspiring artists. Faculty and staff can assist you in finding placement with gallery-related work or with businesses in the community that require commercial art skills.
