Jasmine Clarke, Former Development Intern

Jasmine Clarke is originally from Boston, MA recently graduated from Wheaton College, Ma. Jasmine studied art history and education developing an interest in community and youth development through the arts as a result of her practical experiences and academic studies. Jasmine’s passion for the arts and community engagement began in high school through her participation in programs like City Year; City Heroes, Boston’s Mayors Mural Crew, and National Arts Honors Society which introduced her to the ways in which the arts and engaging with your community could foster change, growth, and development. It wasn’t until attending Wheaton College that she realized she could connect her passions and transform them into a career. Taking on her first internship at ParkARTS in Boston allowed her to work first-hand with the public with activities that included assisting local artists with watercolor workshops in the parks of Boston. Exploring the possibility of museum education as a way of engaging the public through the arts Jasmine decided to intern at Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art where she learned critical skills, gaining knowledge of the museum world.
