    Former Employee - Web Programming Intern in Highland Park, IL

    I worked at Dick Blick as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot in my short time at Blick. I worked on the back end of their website and was able to get experience working with several different webpage programs. My supervisors were supportive and wanted me to gain as much knowledge from the internship as possible.

    Cons

    My commute was long (about 2 hours each way), but other than that I have no complaints about my time at Blick.
