My name is Melanie Hapner and I am a senior Fiber major. During this past summer I was an intern at Wheatonarts and Cultural Center. I always have had an interest in glass art, and when I had the opportunity to take the glass blowing course MICA has to offer at the Corradetti Studio, I wanted to further my knowledge about glass. Wheatonarts is not too far from my home in New Jersey so as a child I was able to visit the community. After the class with Corradetti I decided to email Wheatonarts about information for interning. After speaking with Hank Adams, I was very excited to become an intern.
I’m happy I chose Wheatonarts for my internship because it made me realize the direction I want to take my work and career.
