Externs have the opportunity to work with Oakland's Fashion Art and Design Academy instructors to enrich a variety of science and humanities classes by integrating arts education methodologies.

Organization Description:

Fashion Art and Design Academy (FADA) provides a small, engaging, and diverse collaborative learning community for all students. Through real-world, work-based learning experiences, industry partnerships, and education in a range of disciplines, FADA students are empowered to begin post-secondary paths in the fields of fashion, art, and design.

Externs at Fashion Art and Design Academy assist in lessons by engaging students one-on-one with their work. Externs help FADA students with specific assignments, such as exhibition installations, portfolio presentations, photo documentations of artwork, and writing their artistic statements.
