Under the guidance of noted Native artist Charlie Skultka, paid student apprentices will spend nine weeks at the park's artist studios learning and demonstrating traditional and contemporary metal working techniques. These internships are available to all high school students and recently graduated high school seniors. Preference will be given to students who attend high school at Mount Edgecumbe High School, Pacific High School and Sitka High School.
