We continue our 20th anniversary intern alum spotlights with Julia Pintzopoulos, Marist ‘09.

Julia majored in Studio Art Major with an Art History Minor and a Digital Media Concentration. Today, she teaches art at the JT Hood School in North Reading, Massachusetts.

She shares how her experience at HRVI helped inform her work as an artist and educator:

"While interning at HRVI I wrote my first grant application. Even though I wasn’t awarded the grant, I gained experience in the process and inspiration to keep searching for a way to paint murals. Since then, I have written several grants for Refuge Lowell, an art studio which provides high quality art education for at-risk youth. Through Refuge, I have painted several murals within educational settings. I have also led groups of students in painting murals, which is something I have always dreamed of doing."

Read her full update here. This update, and all of the updates to be featured this year, will be linked to each alum's name on the Interns page of the website.
