Anastasia Lipp: Recipient of 2022 Lunder Summer Internship E! News UK

Anastasia Lipp from New Gloucester, Maine received the prestigious Lunder Summer Internship in Studio Art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Lipp is a rising senior at UMaine and is working toward a bachelor’s degree in studio art with a minor in psychology.

During Lipp’s freshman year of college, she was enrolled in the fine arts program at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada. While Lipp says she enjoyed her time there, she missed Maine and is grateful to have transferred to UMaine.

“The students and staff here really have an uplifting disposition. I am excited about the diversity of facilities in the studio art program. Some days I forge custom metal hooks, other days I create elegant screen prints. UMaine facilitates the creation of a tight-knit community among peers and staff that prioritizes vetting yourself to ensure you have the best tools to succeed as a student,” says Lipp.

At UMaine, Lipp is involved as a member of the Art and Design Collective, the Women in Business Club, and the Sorority Housing Initiative. She also founded the TYPE-ONE-derful! Diabetes club. Within this club, she hosted an art auction in conjunction with Delta Tau Delta to raise nearly $2,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

As an intern at Lunder, Lipp will serve as a teaching assistant in the summer studio art course program at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The programs she will teach are week-long, themed studio art classes for ages 5-11 and 12-17. Classes will take place in the galleries and studios of the museum.

Lipp chose to apply for the Lunder internship after having had positive experiences taking early childhood classes at UMaine and working with teenagers at the South End Teen Center. Lipp says she wants to be part of the team that encourages a new generation of students to use art as a resource for self-expression, personal reflection, and as a framework for exploring the world and human connection.

“I look forward to learning how professionals who have years of experience experience and curiosity in the arts develop and present lessons around a diverse showcase of artifacts, how young minds approach activities; and how best to communicate new information to students,” says Lipp.

As Lipp enters her senior year, she says she is looking forward to her capstone class. The major studio art synthesis project focuses on the planning and installation of an exhibition by the students. Lipp plans to explore the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and return in the fall with a better sense of what a professional exhibit looks like and how minds of all ages will interpret the different pieces.
