Todd“The internship program at Blackbird, in my opinion, is one of the best kept secrets for arts training in the central Arkansas area. It provides a unique experience for dedicated artists to hone and perfect their craft while simultaneously giving them the tools and experience necessary to make a career—not just in the arts, which is currently one of the toughest fields to seek employment, but in any field of work. In my case, the tools and skills were invaluable to me as I pursued my post graduate career and I attribute my success in landing a Big 4 accounting position to the skills and lessons I learned while interning/working for Blackbird.”
